The Tenancy Compliance & Investigations Team (TCIT) being the enforcement arm of Tenancy Services serves to monitor and enforce landlords' compliance with the Residential Tenancies Act. Since its inception in 2016, it has been broadening its reach and ramping up its investigative activities. With this kind of momentum, it is no wonder that many landlords are feeling targeted, wary, exhausted even. Put a foot wrong and the TCIT comes crashing down on you like a ton of bricks. Or does it? 

To take the bullseye right off your back, you've got to figure out how it got there in the first place. Rather than fretting about the Boogeyman that is the TCIT, isn't it better to understand its objectives, inclinations and functions in the first place?

That is why we are tremendously pleased to have Paul Davis, the Senior Operations Advisor of the TCIT come to give a keynote address about the TCIT - the nitty gritty inner workings of the team and how landlords can fall foul of the RTA. His presentation is designed to give you an open-book approach to the TCIT, how it assesses compliance risks, target subjects (landlords and property managers), investigate and follow-through. 

Talking points include: 

  • TCIT background, mission and how its day-to-day activities are affected by the overarching policy objectives of this government; 
  • TCIT activities from 2016, key trends and trajectory going forward;  
  • The investigatory process from start to completion (including how many times the team will interface with the subject under investigation if at all); 
  • Common investigatory outcomes and resolution; 
  • Compliance tips and lessons for landlords from three years of TCIT activities. 

It is often said that fear is driven by a lack of knowledge and a sense of not being in control. Come along to this presentation to get the transparency and high-level information you need to regain control, tread on the right side of the RTA and minimise the risk of being a target of a TCIT investigation.

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
