Bad landlord blames 'cheeky' tenants

Fiona from Henderson

For crying out loud.
www.stuff.co.nz...
It's revolting, callous landlords like this person who make it terribly difficult for the excellent landlords that are out there.
Everything this woman did was illegal according to the Tenancy Tribunal and the Residential Tenancies Act.
This following part implies that she hasn't been paying tax on any of her rentals.
"When Li asked for a written agreement, Robb said if they signed one she would need to pay tax and the rent would increase by 15 per cent, the tribunal found."
So, I think a visit from the I.R.D. for a full audit is well overdue.
Also, "I'm not bad, I'm good. I want to do good things for this country. These Chinese students know the law, in a cheeky way, they go to the Tenancy Tribunal."
Oh, so the tenants are the bad ones? You want to do good things for this country yet you are avoiding paying your taxes!!!!
Where she blames the tenants for asking for a verbal contract, rather than a written one, what a load of balderdash!! If she knows the law like she thinks she does, she would know what is required of her as a landlord.
What did she do with the bond payments I wonder?
As she is known to the tenancy tribunal, I really do believe that she along with any of her family memebrs who are helping her run this renting business, need to be thoroughly investigated by all of the appropriate departments, starting with the I.R.D.!

Celebrating 90 years

The Team from Auckland Museum

Imagine receiving this pamphlet in your letterbox. Would you be compelled to donate?

In 1923 this was sent out to Auckland's citizens, requesting help to raise the remaining £50,000 of the total £200,000 which was needed to build the new Auckland War Memorial Museum. It included a call to donate, initial drawings of the planned Museum and a list of early donors.

The people of Auckland came through and all the funds were raised! The new Auckland Museum was opened on 28 November 1929.

We’re celebrating 90 years of Auckland Museum in Auckland Domain. Read more about the origins of the building here.

Feed a family in need this Christmas

Christmas Box

Christmas is all about sharing time, gifts and good food with family and friends. Sadly, this isn’t always a reality for many Kiwis. Statistics show that one in five Kiwi children are living in households without access to enough (healthy) food.

You can make a difference. By donating a Christmas Box, for only $30, you will contribute to feeding a family of four to six people for up to a week!

“Without Christmas Box, we would not be having Christmas. We can now have Christmas dinner and enough food to last for a while. You have brought joy to our family and smiles on our kids faces.” – Christmas Box recipient.
