Newshub reports on Auckland garages being rented out

A Newshub investigation has revealed Auckland garages are being rented out illegally for more than $400 a week. In a case that is currently before the Tenancy Tribunal, one property manager is accused of commandeering a garage, converting it and renting it out to separate tenants. That's despite the garage apparently being included in the rental agreement for the tenant in the main house - something the property manager disputes.

Deborah Hill Cone asks why renters aren’t rising up?

In her column in the Herald yesterday, Deborah Hill Cone talked about the lack of tenant advocacy over the difficult situations many tenants are in. She asks why is there not a more vocal and activist tenants lobby group? Why are politicians not catering to this group of potential voters? Why are educators who see kids having to be continually moved not fuming? It is a hole in the major parties' housing policies.

​Public invited to have say on homelessness

Community Housing Aotearoa is applauding the Government’s move to fast-track much needed funding into emergency housing.

The Labour party has developed a plan to tackle the housing crisis by building affordable houses and cracking down on speculators, says Leader of the Opposition Andrew Little.
