Property manager not following procedures
Question from Rob updated on 13th May 2010:
Our expert Jeff Montgomery responded:
The Residential Tenancies Act 1986 applies only to the relationship between a tenant and landlord. It doesn’t cover the relationship between a property owner and a property manager. I suggest you seek independent legal advice from your local community law centre about whether this is a matter that could be taken to the Disputes Tribunal.
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.
