Remote replacement costs
Question from nitesh updated on 27th December 2017:
My tenant's car got stolen and she had both the garage remotes in the car so they got stolen too. She has now moved out now but she bought two remotes which she left in the house. Now she is asking us to reimburse the money, saying the landlord should replace the remotes. She said she got the information from tenency.govt.nz. Who should pay to replace the remotes in this situation?
Our expert Bernard Parker responded:
A tenant is responsible for the cost of the remotes in her care. That means that the cost of replacing them is chargeable to her.Bernard is principal of Quinovic – Kapiti-Mana.
