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.

Rent: A classic landlord dilemma

A troubling report inferring bidding wars for rentals has prompted us to consider one of the moral dilemmas of being a landlord - How much is too much to charge tenants? While the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment has clarified there is nothing in the Residential Tenancies Act which 'precludes the tenant from indicating what they would be willing to pay for a ... read more

What does it take for your rental to be 'safe and healthy'?

Most of us are fully aware that one of the hallmark obligations of being a landlord is to provide our tenants with a safe and healthy home. However, there isn't a lot of instructive authority beyond the wordings of s45 of the Residential Tenancies Act. Amongst other things, s45 requires landlords to: ... (b) provide and maintain the premises in a reasonable state of repair having re... read more

Okay. Let's go.

Right kids, break's over. 2018 here we come. January is usually the time we self-reflect, set goals, and think about how to make impactful changes to our lives. Being an investor and landlord is part of that life, so why not take some time to recalibrate and consider how to invest more successfully in 2018? A good starting point has to be getting a lay of the land by getting your head a... 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!
