The Tenants Protection Association may be “concerned” but it’s about time the nonsense of waiting 2-3 weeks to get action, is coming to an end.
This will be of benefit to both landlords and tenants so that misunderstandings are sorted quickly, and rat bags are dealt with promptly.
Concern over rent system changes
Jan 30, 2014
Thousands of state and private tenants behind in their rent will soon be under more pressure, claim critics of a new system designed to cut the time taken to resolve disputes.
Housing Minister Nick Smith today announced changes to Ministry of Justice Tenancy Tribunal processes, reducing landlords’ wait for rent dispute resolutions from about 12 days to two.
A spokesman said that would help tenants and landlords locked in rent disputes, did not favour one party over the other and instead of having to wait for mediation, resolution could be via a confirmation conversation.
