Presentation by Kristine King, Duncan King Law     


Now that key changes brought about by the Residential Tenancies Amendment Act 2019 (RTAA) have sunk in, landlords are starting to identify various operational issues that are ancillary but inevitably connected to compliance. Issues such as privacy concerns when disclosing insurance documentation as well as control over how tenants choose to live warrant further consideration. 

Experienced lawyer and speaker, Kristine King, returns to APIA to walk you through these issues that confront landlords day-to-day. She will be sharing her views on real and imagined risks, best practice, and a sensible way to deal with compliance going forward. 

Talking points
  • Overview of the key elements of the RTAA 
  • Insurance disclosure: How much is too much to disclose? What are the potential harms from a privacy point of view?
  • Tenant damage: Recommended ways to recover payments from tenants who have carelessly damaged the property. Should landlords be concerned over the carelessness vs accident debate? What is the insurance companies role in careless damage going forward? 
  • Unlawful premises: When Tenancy Services says "landlords must comply with all legal requirements relating to buildings and health and safety that apply to the premises" what does that mean? What level of control does the landlord have over how tenants occupy sleep-outs and garages? 
  • Meth: What are the testing requirements? What if the property tests meth-positive during the tenancy, what flow-on effect would that have on the tenant? What if the tenant withholds permission to test? 

Kristine is a director of Duncan King Law and works primarily in the areas of property, commercial law and trusts and has a passion for working with property developers and property traders.

In addition to her legal work, Kristine is the Auckland area legal speaker for the ANZ Property Unlocked Seminar series and undertakes staff training on property issues for organisations such as ANZ and Bayleys. Kristine also provides specialist advice to the New Zealand Law Society on property matters during her work as a Standards Committee member.

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.

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!
