Auckland meeting on tenancy law change, standards
A panel discussion on proposed changes to tenancy law and extra standards for rental property will take place in Auckland on Sunday, Tenancies War spokesman Mike Butler said today.
The meeting, at the Balmoral Community Hall, 258 Balmoral Rd, which will start at 2.30pm on Sunday, December 9, will take the form of a panel discussion.
Panelists include National Party Hunua MP Andrew Bayly, ACT Party candidate Stephen Berry, Tenant Protection representative Angela Maynard, Stop the War on Tenancies founder Mike Butler, property investor and lawyer Naveen Goel, and real estate consultant Paul Davie as moderator.
Big changes are proposed for the Residential Tenancies Act and these will reduce the control that owners will have over their property and make it more difficult for renters to find a home, Mr Butler said.
Extra standards required for insulation, heating, ventilation, draught-proofing, and water-tightness, that will cost around $7000 per property, are proceeding against official advice and have nothing to do with health, he said.
The meeting is important for everyone involved in tenancies and people from across the political spectrum have been invited, Mr Butler said.
The group Stop the War on Tenancies aims to empower both owners and tenants in the face of ongoing Government ineptitude with housing
