Hi Neighbours. My name is Ralph, I’m a KiwiSaver adviser and a Hawke's Bay local.

You may have read things in the media recently about hundreds of thousands of Kiwis not making the most of their KiwiSaver accounts. Kiwis work hard to contribute money to KiwiSaver schemes so why is it that so many people do not get advice that could make them hundreds of thousands of dollars better off at retirement? For most people, getting advice is simply a job they intend to do but never get round to. Today is the day to stop procrastinating!

I offer a 30 min free advice session for anyone wanting to learn how to make the most of their KiwiSaver account savings. If you attend you will get a one year membership to the Generate Frequent Values Reward Program, and valuable information that could help make your retirement a much better experience.

Get in touch today by emailing me at ralph.pedersen@generatekiwisaver.co.nz, phoning me on 027 259 6876 or visiting our website and we can set up a free chat.

Hi Neighbours,
Buster our Beagle is missing his buddy, our lovely Lab, Coffee who passed away last year. We would love to find him a new friend, preferably of more mature years (7 - 8yrs), a small breed although open to options, to rehome. Buster & I walk every day and ideally our new friend would be reasonably active although like our Buster does enjoy long naps in the sun. We can guarantee a loving & warm home with loads of cuddles & affection. If anyone knows of someone wanting to rehome their dog please pass on our info. Oops, almost forgot, our resident cats insist that he or she is good with felines & preferably submissive! Many thanks, Amanda

Who was after scooters?

Sonia from Parkvale

A few months ago someone posted asking for unwanted scooters for a school I think. I have found one in our shed, my son doesn't want it anymore, but I can't find the post. I've tried searching, but nothing is coming up. Can anyone remember who posted that message?

I live in Wellwood Terrace, in a two bedroom cottage with a attached granny flat/ ie the third bedroom and is also advertised holiday accommodation. So when my family isn't staying it's available to paying quests.
I have been here five years and nothing has changed from when I purchased the property other than an update of buildings.
Recently I received notification that my rates were to increase from $2501.60 to $3460.54!
One third increase on the grounds that I am renting and possibly getting income from The Granny flat/ Studio. The HDC has identified my place as being two units. (One septic tank and one power metre; I ask you??) and because I gain income has taken it upon themselves to increase my rates....ALOT!
On discussion the team leader Liz it has become clear that the increase is solely because I get a small income from the Studio... iAND if were to sign documentation to say my mother (RIP) or some family member were living there the rates would re assessed and back to where they historically have been.
So a rental tax??? Yes
A can of worms opening up here???? Absolutely!!
So where do they draw the line? I rent one of my bedrooms with ensuite and ability to make a cuppa and cook a simple meal??
As it is there are times during the year when accommodation is totally booked out in HB , surely we are helping by making part of our homes rentable?
Also it was my understanding that residential rates were based on land valuations land/ capital.
Is this legal ? Someone asked ?
Your thoughts please ..
