3 - 4 Bedroom Family Home Wanted To Rent For Long Term

Nigel from Stoke

Hello Everyone ... We are urgently in need of a family home to rent for the long term.
We would prefer 4 bedrooms as we like to host international students via Nayland College but we can make 3 bedrooms work. The maximum weekly rent that we can manage is $475.
We are a family of 4 ... 2 children ages 12 and 14yrs... I am 59yrs young and my wife is 49 years young.
We would prefer the Stoke, Nayland, Enner Glynn areas but anything will be considered.
This is urgently required so if anyone can help, please contact Nigel on 022 3243695 or Sarah on 022 6542069. Thank you.

Tree Notice Issues

Adrienne from Hope

This week I received a notice from Network Tasman telling me to have a roadside tree trimmed because it has stretched itself close to the powerlines. A complete and reasonable request which I had meant to do in winter but couldn't get my expert arborist to do it. Problem is, thanks to government legislation under Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 I am now required to notify Network Tasman 3 days prior to the work being done but, horrifyingly, I can't use my own arborist, I am only allowed to use an arborist certified by Network Tasman. I look for a list of arborists permitted but what do I see - there is only one - Treescape. I immediately smell a rat. If there is only one certified company in this region then I can be charged whatever they want to. There is no guarantee that they will prune the tree to a standard I wish for either. I then began looking throughout NZ to find out what the situation is elsewhere and what do I spy - Treescape's name coming up everywhere. In many other places they are also the only option. Next stop - the Commerce Commission because this is appalling. This is anti-competitive and stinks of cronyism. If I do not use Treescape (who incidentally operate via a call centre and have not got in touch with me in the 4 days since I phoned and they took my details), I can be fined by the Govt up to $10,000. Has anyone else experienced this issue and have the same concerns? I am feeling a bit like NZ is morphing into something akin to the old Soviet Union.
