This week's question comes from Maggie: I issued a 90-day notice for termination on 5th November. The tenants have asked if they can stay longer as they can’t find a home. I still want to terminate but am flexible with the date of exit. I gave notice in this instance as these are not tenants I want once the RTAA2020 termination rules come into effect. What’s my position if I allow them to ... read more

Sandra has a problem

Sandra has a problem. Sandra and her husband Terry live in a small house down a private right-of-way. They have been there for a few years, and like the location. It is handy to Terry’s work, and Sandra can easily catch the bus to her part-time job as a teacher aide. The neighbouring house on the road frontage is a rental, and some months ago new tenants moved in. Altho... read more

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!
