5 August 2016

Tenancy Services, in association with the New Zealand Property Investors’ Federation and the Ministry of Justice are inviting landlords and property investors (with 5 properties or less) to attend these evening seminars.

With a focus on the new tenancy laws that came into force on 1 July, the aim of the seminars is to help landlords and property investors get a better understanding of how to effectively apply the law changes in relation to their rental property, their tenants, and running their everyday business.

The free seminars will be held in selected locations across New Zealand. Seating is limited, so registration is essential to secure a spot. The seminar presentations will be delivered by representatives from the regional Property Investor Association, Tenancy Services, ECCA and the Ministry of Justice (Tenancy Tribunal Adjudicators).

Topics include:

  • New Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) Amendments (tenancy laws) from 1 July 2016 – smoke alarms, insulation, expedited abandonments, enforcement and new administration procedures
  • Advice about creating warmer, drier, safer homes
  • Information about the new Tenancy Compliance and Investigations team
  • Services available – Bonds online, Resolve, Tenancy Tribunal applications online
  • Dispute resolution processes
  • The benefits of joining a Property Investor Association

The seminars will be approximately 90 minutes long, followed by an opportunity for you to ask questions. Tea and coffee will be provided.
