Stucko or Plasterboard houses - Banks Won't Sell Your House (if selling) with Stuck O Around Your House

Matt from Henderson

Hi Neighbourly, I heard something from my family member which will shock people with Plasterboard houses or Stuck O!

Hi Neighbourly, I heard something from my family member which will shock people with Plasterboard houses or Stuck O!

Apparently, anyone now who has got Plasterboard or Stuck O houses, if you want to sell your house, the banks won't let you sell your house because of the Plasterboard or Stuck O that is around and outside of your house. Not sure if this is New Zealand issue or maybe just Auckland, not sure on the exact details though.

The picture here is just an example of what a plasterboard or Stuck O is like.

Matt

Has anyone got further ideas or more in detail about Plasterboard houses and why banks can't sell with this material?

Bad landlord blames 'cheeky' tenants

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.!

A Butchered Version of "War of the Worlds" that aired on TV1 for three Sundays

Matt from Henderson

Hi everyone, Matt here. Did anyone watch the "War of the Worlds" this Sunday just gone (20 October) and the other two Sundays (6,13).

Hi everyone, Matt here. Did anyone watch the "War of the Worlds" this Sunday just gone (20 October) and the other two Sundays (6,13).

I don't know what others think, I thought that having the 'War of the Worlds" for three Sundays did not cover the whole story line as far as I was concerned. If whoever had produced the "War of the Worlds" on TV1, they should at least looked the the "Jeff Wayne, War of the Worlds", music version and worked along that kind of story line and push the series or movie to a month and half long, still have on a Sunday but have it more action packed so to speak if that makes sense.

Here is a youtube link if anyone wants to watch the musical full concert version Jeff Wayne and his team did in the UK sometime back.
