Just an update that I missed out on the property I was keen on. I have enquired about another but there aren't many places that allow cats so for now I am staying put! Will still keep everyone in mind though as you never know what may happen :).
Thank you all again for your time and interest,
Firstly this is currently just a "what if" situation.
I am currently considering moving back to Hawkes Bay. If I find a place it would mean breaking my lease early. I will need to double check about subletting my unit but from what I recall, I would need to pay for rental listing fees and continue paying my rent until my property managers find a replacement.
I just thought that maybe I could find a way around this by possibly finding a single person or couple early without having to pay these hefty listing fees/pay double rent.
Is anyone here currently looking for a rental close to the city but far enough away for some peace and quiet :). Or do you know someone who is?
I have lived in this lovely one bedroom unit in Northland village for 5.5 years. My only reason for wanting to move is that I would like to live closer to my family.
There is a wee room next to the living room which I call the sun room. Right now I use it as my office space but you could also fit a small guest bed if you wanted to. The bonus about living here is that cats are allowed! They have a lovely hill to explore and I installed a cat door when I moved in so that's handy :).
I will be visiting Hawkes Bay this weekend and hope to view a rental then. I will know more after this weekend just thought I would see if there may be any takers ahead of time! It may well be that I will still need to get it listed the official way but it can't hurt to try different avenues 😉. I will wait with posting photos until I have my property managers permission to do so.
DIY-ers are being urged to dispose of paint responsibly, after a video captured paint flowing from a storm water drain into Titahi Bay. Wellington Water said paint was found in waterways every summer. How do you you dispose of paint?

When a Christchurch school lost four classrooms to fire, retired AMI Branch Manager Philip Buckingham knew how he could help.
Philip – “ When one of our offices is relocated or refitted as a flexi workspace, there are all sorts of useful items left behind — stationery, file cabinets, chairs, desks, computer monitor arms. For years now, we have gathered it all up and donated it to schools; initially those hit particularly hard by the Christchurch earthquakes. It’s hard to explain, but it’s just in our DNA at AMI to help people. After the Russley School fire, there was an urgent need to get the kids some stationery. On my way home, I went to the school and spoke with the principal, Greg Lewis. We couldn’t have asked for a better principal for the school, he is such a great guy.”
