Do you have a rental property or manage rentals? This one is for you!
Methamphetamine - or "P" - is becoming more common everyday. We come across it more regularly and it is now a big problem for those in the residential property market.
Meth is a harmful, chemical based stimulant. Generally people smoke it through little glass pipes. When smoked or manufactured indoors, the harmful chemicals leech into the walls and materials. These chemicals then make their way from the walls into the bodies of the people inside - not nice stuff! This can cause adverse cardiovascular, respiratory and dermal effects.
So what do we recommend? Treat it the same as you would with any other aspect of property management. Do a meth test before tenants move in. Do regular meth tests when completing house inspections (you need to allow for this in your contract) and complete meth tests when they leave.
If you can prove your tenants have been consuming or manufacturing P in your house, you have grounds to have them evicted and if needed, evidence to support a civil claim to the tenancy tribunal for damages.
Have a bit of a look on the internet for different suggestions about how to word your tenancy contracts and what to do if you do detect meth in your rental.
If you have any information in regards to the use, sale or manufacture of methamphetamine, please let us know. The best way to do it is to call CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111 - that way your information can be kept confidential.
Help us rid our country of this nasty drug. Share this with anyone you know who has a rental or is in property management!
This week we're looking at how the pandemic will affect our children and their resilience. The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing email@example.com, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print. Parents, if you're happy for your children to be photographed please let us know.
