Got some pretty shite news tonight. We've been served with a 42 day notice as the landlord wants to move into the house :pinch:

Personally, I think he is full of it, he wants us out so he can bulldoze this house and build two new properties on the section :evil:

Now the hunt begins for a new place

What is f'ing bollocks is that we have been given a 42 day notice.

Have just found a place that ticks almost all the boxes. It is only a kilometre from where we are currently are, and is available now.

BUT we are required to give 21 days notice before we can move out :evil:

I had an argument with someone who is a landlord online a few weeks ago. He tried telling me that tenants have all the rights in rental situations. What a crock :sick:

Given the landlord wants the house, perhaps they will waive the 21 days. If you don't ask, the answer is always no.

True that, but with the previous dealings we've had with the landlord, the muppet would want his three weeks rent :whistle:

The thing that really f's me off is that the landlord supposedly wanted long term tenants. It seems like BS, I think he wanted some tenants while waiting for council approval for subdividing. It would be hard to find tenants for a 3 month term :angry:

Sucks to hear bro, and only just after you moved again. Have a look around westgate even, the wifes cousin just got a rental at the back of westgate for (what is now) a reasonable amount... If I had the space you could move in to my place if you didn't find somewhere soon enough but alas our house is too tiny...

Sorry to hear about your dickhead landlord giving you the run around Andrew. Auckland unfortunately has turned into a real estate festering sore and mostly down to the (redacted) and (redacted) super city (redacted). Infrastructure spending; (redacted) is that?!. It's a (redacted) worm hole; exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that's it's sucking surrounding districts into it. Our (redacted) says there's (redacted) housing in out lying (redacted). Take (redacted) for example; where new houses are now selling for pretty much a (redacted) dollars. But that's ok, because (redacted) is (redacted) for (redacted) and we can all use our helicopters to get to work... :unsure:

Makes perfect sense :lol:

Sorry Terry, but we don't do politics here, way too dangerous a subject.
I happen to disagree with you, so best if we just step back from the edge here ;)

The rental market is similarly crazy in Chch, but for different reasons. As for Auckland, the bubble market definitely needs popping correction. Bring it on. :woohoo:

Down here in Blackball, I'm paying $200 a week, and it's a 3 beddy with big lawn, no immediate neighbours... just paradise.

Good luck with the move mate! hopefully something suitable comes up and is at a decent price

We found two houses that suited us last night, we rung about them this morning, but both were tenanted out yesterday :pinch:

There is a third house we like, but was at the bottom of the list. It is on the side of a hill and is even more expensive than what we are paying now. The only positive is that it has a sleepout that would be perfect for a model room :evil:

Like I said to SWMBO, we cant panic yet that we cant find a place. It has only been 24 hours since we received the notice. We only need to panic if we have less than a week to go on the 42 days and haven't found something :whistle:

If it comes to the worst, we'll move in with my dad until we find something suitable.

Sorry to hear Andrew, that really f n sucks...I would tell him, since he wants the property back your moving as soon as you find a place...he cant keep you dangling on the hook (and I think he has to give you min 60 days, oh as the current tenant, you have all the say, including staying put until you are ready to move, squatters rights) and swimming to his demands. Personally, I'd move and get your family reset.

I agree with G1 about property prices in Te Awamutu...been searching online for months and found a few places in the NI relatively cheap on the pocket...its all about your employment opportunities tho...and. Waikato aint too bad of a rugby province either btw
Te Awamutu, New Plymouth, Napier, Hastings, Palmerston North, Masterton all not too bad

This is how we know the landlord and property manager are full of shite and telling stories.



This was outside our garage during a heavy downpour this morning.

The garage floor was totally flooded. This is the third time in as many months that it has happened. We notified the property manager the first time (first week of July) and she was supposed to organise a drainage inspector to sort out the flooding. Luckily I moved everything of value off the floor after the first flooding.

We are still waiting for the drainage inspector almost 2 months later.

You'd think you'd want to get it sorted, unless you have something else in mind for the property.

I'll be having a spy to see if the landlord does actually move in after we go. Evidently we can take him to court/tenancy tribunal and recover our moving costs if he just wants us out

Hi Andrew,
Sorry to hear about your predicament. Can I however make a suggestion? While it feels really good to vent about your Landlord and what you perceive he is doing, you may not be making the best impression on other potential Landlords. We have a property coming available in the next couple of months and while happy to help out others with the same interests, I certainly would be thinking twice after seeing this, wouldn't want to be on the end of such a tirade should our circumstances change, if you get my drift.

Just my 2cents and not wanting to upset you or anything, just point out something that you may not have considered.

Shane

The problem witn money is, most of it belongs to people that aren't me!

Fair enough, but this isn't even half of the problems we've had with the house.

We had to wait almost two months for a working oven (constantly lying about when we were going to get one). Some windows in our daughters bedroom had BB bullet holes, had several quotes (fair enough) but took almost a month to get them fixed, weeks after the tradesmen had been through for quotes. The toilet cistern leaked, again over 6 weeks to repair, after plumber had quoted the costs. The house hot water runs on LPG. The property manager informed us the Landlord is required to have them full for us at the beginning of the tenancy, they were both near empty. We had to connect our 9kg cylinder from the heater in order to be able to bath the kids and clean dishes until he arranged for two full cylinders to be delivered. We have only just received the reimbursement for the gas we used from our cylinder near 3 months after sending the receipt in. We had to wait for the landlord to remove a chicken coup from the yard, even though he said it was a rabbit hutch (never seen a rabbit with chicken feathers before :evil: ) and there is still all the mess from the run for the chickens. We are responsible for maintaining the lawns at the property, we asked for them to be cut prior to moving in. It was never done. It cost us over $100 to have the lawns cut. The mower guy said the lawns hadn't been cut for close to 6 months.

We have never missed a rent payment here, even with all the grief encountered. Also understand that it does take time for landlords to arrange repairs, so have no problem with the request/approval procedure. But I hate being lied to

We were at our last property for 9 years, and never had a problem with the landlord. We only moved because he sold up. He liked us that much that he gave us our last weeks rent free, and even paid for cleaners to clean the house for us.

It may seem an unjust rant. But I don't believe it is fair to treat tenants like this, and expect them to be fine about it.

Best of luck finding something suitable (with a decent man cave)
The landlord has met his legal requirements by the sounds of it but I would not be hesitant in talking to the Tenancy Tribunual, I have queried them in the past and they were nothing but helpful in answering questions that the websites made confusing.

I can also vouch for the Manawatu, great place to live and plenty of work in general, not likley to fall into the ocean, does not sit on a volcano, will be waterfront when the icecaps melt and has a thriving little model club :-)
