 Why It Is Important to Know Your Tenant Rights

It can be easy to feel powerless in a rental within your tenant/landlord relationship, but you have some important tenant rights under New Zealand law that can help to protect you from negligence and miscommunication. While ideally, you will have a good working relationship with your landlord where both parties strive to meet their obligations to one another, we know that this is not always the case, and tenants can often end up with a raw deal through not knowing their rights.

What Tenant Info is Covered?

In our tenant information guide, we go over the most essential tenant rights to keep in mind when dealing with your landlord. This includes:

  • Maintenance and repairs responsibility
  • Bond and rent amounts
  • Property access requests and inspections
  • Contracts and binding agreements
  • Best practice for communicating with your landlord
  • & Other landlord and tenant information

Having this tenant information available puts you on even footing with the landlord, which can help to build a relationship of trust and respect. Don’t be silent about things that are bothering you in your rental situation. Learn how the law works and how it can benefit your renting experience.
