Property manager has not increased rent as asked, what can I do?
Question from Janet updated on 4th March 2009:
Our expert Jeff Montgomery responded:
The Residential Tenancies Act 1986 only applies to the relationship between a tenant and landlord. It does not cover the relationship between a property owner and property manager. I recommend that you seek independent legal advice from your local community law centre about whether you have any recourse with your property manager.
The Department of Building and Housing provides information and guidance on building law and compliance, services including weathertight homes, and advice for tenants and landlords.
