Billion dollar 'sweet spot'

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Morning neighbours,

A number of significant infrastructure projects in and around Hamilton are aligning to deliver a massive boost to the city and region.

Hamilton East list MP Jamie Strange even predicted the city will overtake both Wellington and Christchurch to become the country's second biggest city in 30 years.

Dallas Fisher, chair of regional economic development agency Te Waka, said he knew of one major Waikato construction company that had 37 projects in the works.

The region is "ready to pop".

Smoke alarms must be installed within 3 metres of every bedroom door, or in every room where a person sleeps. Plus if the rental is multi-storey, smoke detectors must be fitted on each level. New smoke alarms need to be photoelectric, have a battery life of at least 8 years or be hard wired. However, the tenant should replace the batteries in smoke alarms.

At Lodge, our property management team stay up to date with the latest regulations and can answer your trickiest rental related questions.
