Property manager discusses govt's plan for regulation

From Checkpoint, 6:07 pm on 22 November 2022

Professional property managers want all landlords to be created equal, when it comes to regulations for tenancies.

The government's regulating residential property managers - saying it will improve protections for tenants.

They'll have to be registered, trained and licensed, and complaints and disciplinary matters will be dealt with through a new regulatory framework.

But the rules won't apply to private landlords who manage their own properties, or Kainga Ora property managers.

David Pearse is chairman of the Residential Property Managers Association. He talks to Lisa Owen.
