Comments & Support for a Call for a Registration of Property Managers

Register of Property Managers


There has been recent discussion related to the possible regulation of Property Managers in New Zealand.
 In any debate, it is our view that the following need consideration:
- It's important to have an external body to make a complaint to. Often the person you must complain to is the person you have the complaint about.
- Owners need a place to take their concerns to. They are currently not being served well.
- The Residential Tenancies Act implies professional behaviour is required but is not explicit.   A Code of Conduct / Behaviour is good as it sets up clear expectation of conduct and consequences for failure to adhere to them.
- We support the creation of a Register of Rental Properties. This way the rental housing stock can be monitored. Landlords that currently choose not to engage with MBIE or a professional body can then be more easily reached.
