What recourse do I have against poor property management?
(updated on Friday, August 29th 2008)
Our Experts Answer:
The Residential Tenancies Act only applies to the relationship between a tenant and landlord, and does not cover the relationship between property owner and property manager. I recommend that you seek independent legal advice from your local community law centre about whether your property manager can be held responsible for damage caused by the tenants.

You could contact the Independent Property Managers Association for more advice. http://ipma.nzpif.org.nz/
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.
