On the other hand, many landlords are frustrated by being excluded from most of the government's relief packages in light of Covid-19.

John Priest: Being a successful landlord, my way

Firstly, be careful who you accept as a tenant. Sorry property managers, but I insist on managing my own properties and I consider the most important aspect of this to be tenant selection. I want to meet prospective tenants and see if I have a good feeling about them. Whatever your instinct tells you it must be backed up with research. Once when I had had a shortage of... read more

Why The Case Of Cattermole v Jackson Should Enter Every Landlord's Lexicon?

Do you have one of those tenants who seem to know the system inside-out, so much so that he always, always, gets away with paying rent late? I had one once. And let me tell you something, it was like being stuck in the Twilight Zone. For months no end, he would always be exactly 20 days behind on rent, carefully skirting around the 21-day legislative deadline for the Tenancy Tribunal to in... read more

2013 Resolution #1: Get Paid On Time

2013!!! In the words of every magazine cover, blog and self-helping newsletter: New Year, New You? Well, let us be the first to say, hopefully not, because we quite like the "old" you. But we shan't go quietly into 2013. How about some resolutions? Not the impossible, annoying, guilt-ridden-when-they-don't-quite-happen kind, the completely possible, totally probably, small-steps kind (i.... 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!
