Poll: At what age was your child fully toilet trained?

Jacques Steenkamp Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Schools and health boards are noticing some children starting school are struggling to fit in because they aren't toilet trained yet. Has this been a problem for your family or anyone you know? Why do you think this is an issue?

Here I will be listing things to sell but, I will not accept money in return, I will trade it for something else. So feel free to send me offers for whatever thing/s you may have to barter for the stuff I am selling, I will consider all offers and will respond if I think your offer is most suitable to my needs, basically it is old school bartering system. So here is my first item - Edifier 2.1 speaker system. I bought it from jb hifi about two years back and they have been used only a few times, they are in mint condition and working well. Let me know what you can offer for these , I will consider anything from a bag of potatoes to a brand new tesla :P .

Last chance for landlords to make reform bill submissions

Brigitte from Remuera

Hi Neighbours and fellow Property Investors,

Hi Neighbours and fellow Property Investors,
I know this will affect many of you so please do have your say!!
There are only 4 days left to make submissions to the Government on their consultation document for the in-depth reform of the Residential Tenancy Act. Please do not be complacent as some of the changes proposed are extremely significant and far reaching.

All residential landlords are encouraged to get their opinions heard. However, this can be a tedious and even daunting task for some so I am happy to provide a few documents to assist.
Understand what it is all about: Q & A explaining the (government) rationale for the proposed key changes.
Individual submissions can be made by filling in the online survey. www.research.net...

You do not have to answer all questions, only the ones relevant to you. The New Zealand Property Investors Association has put together a guide I've attached with considered proposed answers.

Time poor but you have a view on key matters? Do not despair. I also have a word doc template I can send you to customise your answers and send by email to RTAreform@mbie.govt.nzto which I would be happy to send to you. Just get in touch at brigitte@catalise.co.nz or look at our neighbourly Catalise business page which has all the documents attached.

At this stage the Government is collecting feedback, not everything will be implemented. However, actively managing a rental property will be more critical than ever before as significant changes will occur as early as 2020.

Sounds complex? Well, it can be. We stay on top of the game to advise our clients in their best interests within the scope of the law and avoid any penalties for non compliance that may arise. Rental property investing will remain. We are property investors too and we don’t intend to leave the market. Doing it right though, will be important and we can assist you with this process at anytime.
We believe prevention is much better than a corrective action so don’t wait until it’s too late to have your say. Brigitte M: 021318928

Need advice please - Who should be responsible for trimming the trees

Nilesh from Royal Oak

Hi there neighbours,

Just need some advice. If a tree’s branches protrude into another home’s boundary, who is responsible for keeping these trimmed?

Would it be the property owner/occupants where the tree is rooted?

Thank you!

Kia ora water-lovers!

Here are some tips to make sure you and your loved ones are well prepared and stay safe:

1. Check the marine weather forecast before you go out, it could save your life! 58% of boaties already check it. We want the other 42% to make it a habit. MetService New Zealand's Marine App makes it easy.

2. Tests your life jackets. Pull hard on the straps and see if any of them stretch or rip. Check all over for any existing tears in the straps and any cuts or punctures in the life jacket. If yes, do not use the life jacket, dispose of it, and replace it. Always check if it floats before putting them on. Keep in mind kapok life jackets should not be used as they can absorb water and sink, their cotton straps also easily rip! Burn them or bin them, but whatever you do - don't use or resell them.

3. For this year's Safer Boating Week, boaties are being reminded to “Prep, Check, Know” - prepare your boat, check your gear and know the rules before going on the water.

Let's put in the time and effort to make sure there are NO water related accidents or deaths this Labour Day long-weekend! Don't forget to look out for each other and report any concerns you have to local authorities.
