Coronavirus: Auckland landlord offering free rentals wants others to do the same

Danielle Clent Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours, a landlord who is offering two properties for free to families in need during the coronavirus pandemic is calling on other landlords and property developers to do the same.
Just before the country went into lockdown at 11.59pm on Wednesday, a five-bedroom home in Auckland's West Harbour was listed on Trade Me for just $1 a week.
Owner Angela Olsen said she just wanted to do her part to help stranded families during the next four weeks and would do it for free.
What do you think of this? Do you believe other landlords would be in a position to do this too?

On the lookout for ...👀

Fiona from Henderson

Is anyone out there refurbishing their bathroom by any chance and disposing of all the old bathroom decor?
I'm looking for 2 x towel rails about 480-500mm wide please.
They look similar to the pick below, but they don't have to be that fancy. Plain old chrome will do please. Free would be perfect as I don't want brand new ones, they just have to be clean please.
