Am I running a boarding house?

This week's question comes from Sue (paraphrased): I am renting out a property that has six bedrooms.

Our response: To answer this question, we first look at the definitions of both boarding house and boarding house tenancy per the Residential Tenancies Act (... read more

Ryan Smuts: What can you do if you bought at the top of the market?

This is a question that often troubles people, as they are unsure about how to proceed from here in terms of maintaining and/or growing their property portfolio further. I think some key things need to be considered: What did you actually buy? This is important to know because it will help you determine whether to hold or sell. Did you buy something in a likely high-growth or low-growth a... read more

How to streamline Watercare admin?

This week's question comes from Glen (paraphrased): Our property management company has advised that we have to keep our rental's Watercare account in our own name because we are still responsible for the fixed-charge. Is that correct? Isn't that a lot of extra hassle now that we have to collect variable charges from tenants? Our response: Your property manager is quite correct insofar ... read more

Peter Lewis: What happened in 2018?

Well, that’s 2018 all wrapped up and stowed away. If I said it was all pretty much dull and boring, you’d know I was lying. Throughout the year property people seemed to have retained their reputation as being down there among used car salesmen, politicians and other assorted undesirable low-lifers among both the general public and the body politic. For some reason it is perfectly Ok... read more

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!
