Are six month rental terms causing a summer housing squeeze?

Amy Ridout Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Six-month leases are becoming more common in Nelson as landlords realise they can gain more income from marketing their properties to tourists over summer.

Renters are finding themselves evicted at the busiest time of year, when everyone is looking for accommodation.

Has this happened to you or anyone you know? We'd love to hear your comments. You might be contacted for a story we'd like to do on six month rentals.
