Pushing landlords out will only make renting more expensive

Nice Place Property Management Ltd

“Landlords supply around 85% of the homes that tenants live in, but they are facing a large number of increased costs.” There tends to be a negative few on landlords, but this article looks into what it is really like to supply rental properties, and how it is increasingly becoming difficult.

Nelson's Santa

Inga from Brooklyn

I really do not understand the problem. Santa can be any colour he/she likes - never heard of Christmas magic? Just like children come in all colours so does Santa. If we kept up all our 'traditions' women still wouldn't have the vote, couldn't work when they married etc - I could go on about the traditional past inequalities in societies. We all know that many inequalities and prejudices still exist in our society, so I hope it is time to let Santa be who he/she wants to be and give children of all colours a feeling of belonging and self-worth.

Cleaning: one off request

Sudhir from Oriental Bay

I need a one off clean in Oriental Bay: perhaps around the 4-5 hour mark,

i) 2 showers: tiled floor, tiled walls and glass door for each

ii) kitchen cabinets (external: i.e. doors) and the oven, dishwasher, fridge and microwave (outsides only for each of these: i.e. the steel surface)

iii) our front glass ranchsliders that open out into 2 balconies so easy to reach etc

may make a bit longer but that's fine.

Ideally in week starting Mon 17/12.
