Res­o­lu­tions faster

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Ten­ancy Tri­bunal rent dis­putes are set to change un­der a new fast-track process, re­duc­ing the time to reach agree­ment be­tween land­lords and ten­ants. In a suc­cess­ful pi­lot last year the time to re­solve ap­pli­ca­tions was cut from 12 days to an av­er­age of 48 hours. Rent ar­rears dis­putes com­prise 76 per cent of the 43,000 ap­pli­ca­tions to the Ten­ancy Tri­bunal each year, 9000 of which are with Hous­ing New Zealand. From Fe­bru­ary 1, Fast­track will ini­tially be rolled out to high vol­ume Ten­ancy Tri­bunal ser­vice users, in­clud­ing large prop­erty man­age­ment com­pa­nies and Ter­ri­to­rial Lo­cal Au­thor­ity hous­ing providers.
