Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Fig­ures ob­tained un­der the Of­fi­cial In­for­ma­tion Act show Hous­ing New Zealand sales and pur­chases in the sub­urbs of Pon­sonby, Point Che­va­lier, Grey Lynn, Water­view, West­mere, Free­mans Bay and Mt Al­bert cen­tral since July 2012. The av­er­age state house sale price in the sub­urbs has jumped from about $570,000 in 2012 to more than $1 mil­lion in 2014. One Pon­sonby home owned by Hous­ing New Zealand sold for $1.2 mil­lion in the last year. In the same time pe­riod, Hous­ing New Zealand has is­sued 81 no­tices for 90-day evic­tions to city-fringe ten­ants. Sixty were for health and safety rea­sons at Hous­ing New Zealand com­plexes on Sy­monds St and Asquith Ave. Hous­ing New Zealand re­fused to re­lease how many prop­er­ties were sold after ten­ants served with 90-day no­tices moved out. Five ten­ants have been legally evicted from city-fringe prop­er­ties since July 2011 for disturbing the peace, rental ar­rears, un­de­clared in­come and anti-so­cial be­hav­iour.
