Say NO! to 218-1

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

218-1 The Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill proposes to introduce sweeping changes that will, in our view, significantly impact the business of landlording.

In fact, according to the REINZ, 82% of New Zealanders oppose the Bill's signature proposal to abolish the landlord's ability to terminate a tenancy with a 90-day notice.

The public has until 25th of March 2020 to submit against the Bill. In addition to being simply bad law, we are also incredibly concerned by the staggering level of misinformation that is being repeated about this Bill.

To that end, we have put together this action guide to help landlords understand what 218-1 means in practice and take positive steps to push back against it. 

What can you do about 218-1? 

1. Learn 

2. Care 

3. Keep Caring 
4. Spread the word
  • Forward this link to anyone (landlords, tenants, neighbours of tenants) who you think will be affected by 218-1/interested in the information. 

The time has come for us to take action against 218-1. While its objectives are laudable, the Bill remains grossly neglectful of the day-to-day challenges of landlords and stubbornly naïve of the business of renting. Not only will it fail at achieving the objectives of making renting more fair New Zealand and giving tenants more control, it will most certainly result in unintended consequences that will add undue burden not just on landlords, but also tenants. 

Will you idly stand by while our elected representatives choose ideological pursuit over their duties to act for and serve all of New Zealand?

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.

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!
