Tenancy Services Takes on Enforcer Role – Is Your Rental Property Compliant?

By Morris and Co (Property Management)

MBIE’s new Tenancy Compliance and Investigation team kicked off their work late last year with an investigation of some Dunedin student flats.

Team manager Paul Coggan said the level of non-compliance identified during this operation was concerning, especially in the area of the current insulation statements now required on tenancy agreements.

The Dunedin visit was just the start of these operations and the team will be in cities and towns across New Zealand to carry out such work, he said.

“We will not hesitate to take action for breaches of residential tenancy law. Breaches will be subject to compliance action and potentially exemplary damages of up to $4,000 per breach.”  For more information click here.
