My apartment is freezing in winter. What are my rights? The owners only have to heat up in the living room. If there is no heating in the living room, talk to your landlord or contact the rental service. My landlord refuses to insulate my house. What are my rights? The insulation of ceilings and subfloors, where it is reasonably possible to install, will be mandatory in all rental units from July 1, 2019. If your landlord does not follow the rules, he or she may be liable for a fine of up to 4000 $US. Talk to your landlord or contact the tenant service. Tenants should read the lease carefully before signing it. This includes all terms and conditions.
If there is something they do not understand, they should seek advice before signing. We are sorry to hear your burns on the towel rail. The best place to see if landlords have obligations with respect to heated towels is the rental service of the Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Employment: www.tenancy.govt.nz/ Among other things, the agreement must indicate the names of the parties involved, the loan, a list of chattels, the date on which the lease begins and ends (when it has a fixed term) and a contact address for the owner. We advise you to get more details from Denpesdienste if you are about to enter into a service rental agreement. In addition, fixed-term leases of three years or more should be listed on the title. This protects the fixed duration of a cancellation in the event of a sale of the property. Leases of three years or less automatically have this protection (Real Property Act 1900 (NSW), section 42 (1) (d)). Mold grows in my building. What am I supposed to do? Tenants must maintain their rents in a condition that does not induce mould and humidity. This involves keeping the house well ventilated and removing mold as soon as it appears.
For one person: enter your full legal name in the rental agreement. Landlords must verify the identity of the tenant before moving in. You can download our rental application form before below. All leases must contain the full legal names of the landlord and tenants.
