Ask Allan Galloway, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment questions relating to tenants and landlords
The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment provides information and guidance on building law and compliance, services including weathertight homes, and advice for tenants and landlords.
The house in question has been sold keeping the existing tenants. The current property included a big back yard and garage. But the back yard is now being sub-divided which means the garage will be demolished.
The tenants will have to store their belongings from the garage elsewhere and there will no longer be a backyard as the contractors will be running services, ripping up the driveway and putting a house on the backyard. Are the tenants entitled to a rent reduction?
Does a property manager have a responsibility towards the tenant to ensure that the dwelling they are advertising is not illegal?
I am the tenant in this question. I am looking to start a from home business. As I am renting what are some things I need to talk to my landlord about?
I am looking to use a portion of the basement as an office, but want to make sure we both know where we stand before I commit to anything. Couldn't find any good examples of this to go from.
