All about money
Housing NZ’S 0800 system won’t be like talking to the tenancy manager.
Could homes get neglected? Could tenants be done for things that aren’t their doing (bad tradesmen?). This is a bad move. Also, for a person who is desperate to apply for a home, [the impression is they] are now being treated like a thing instead of a person.
I think this will bring back freedom camping. I’m watching a situation like this now. Work and Income are much the same – mucking people around with stand downs. No soul.
I wonder where crime prevention is? Some people need instant help – this will just put pressure on the rest of the system, health, prisons, families, etc. Maybe they hope to fade away. It’s all about money. Government saving. GRACE TAYLOR, Linden.
