The PRA applies to couples who are married, or in a civil union, or de facto relationship, a category which includes couples who don’t live together. The PRA divides property (which includes assets and liabilities) into relationship property, which is most often shared equally b... read more

Discrimination has no place in residential tenancy

Reading through a recent tenant complaint to the Human Rights Commission has been a disturbing experience, to say the least.  Taking the complainant's account on its face, it would appear that the landlord and the person holding herself out to be the letting agent have completely failed the fundamental obligation for a landlord (or anyone, for that matter) not to discriminate.&nb... read more

Nick Goodall: Impact of the 2017 Election on Auckland’s property market

  As the year draws to a close, we’ve got a good understanding on likely changes to the property market and certainly which buyer groups are under the new Government’s property spotlight.

The Government has been clever in using the Overseas Investment Act to restrict foreign citizens buying existing property, but th... read more

Is banning foreign buyers the answer to our housing crisis?

Per its election promise, Labour is pushing ahead with plans to ban foreign buyers from buying existing residential properties in an effort to calm the housing market to benefit first home buyers.  By all indications, the government is working on legislative changes with the expectation that by the end of this year non-citizens and non-residents will not be able to purchase... read more

What can property investors learn from Jeff Bezos?

Peter Lewis: DTI is but a band-aid solution to the bigger housing crisis

Reserve bank Governor Graham Wheeler has been working for some time to reduce the risk that he sees in the New Zealand banking system, mainly centred on house price inflation and low dairy product returns. Now that the milk market has turned up again, property prices and the related mortgage lending seem to be his main target. He has already attempted to restrain the demand for h... read more

Peter Lewis: Rent control is not the answer to fairer housing

We sometimes hear advocates for residential tenants claim that rents should be subject to price control. They say that rent controls provide long-term security for renters, and tilt the balance of power away from landlords towards the tenants. This, in their view, makes for a fairer housing market in which households with lower incomes cannot easily be pushed aside by landlords k... 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!
