Healthy Homes - We are now moving into the next stage of dealing with homes and each home wheather new or old will have to be assessed to ensure the home complies with changes coming into effect on 1 July 2021,
At Prime Rentals we will be sending a trained person to assess photograph and report on all matters relating to Healthy Homes Legalisation. Any imformation that tenants can give us about their home is greatly appreciated. It maybe a draft under a door, or around a loose window latch or a loose downpipe. We run a tight ship on maintenance.

A couple of weeks ago I was interviewed by Bay of Plenty times reporter about the Tauranga rental property market and on Easter Saturday the following article on the front page of BOP Times. The rental market does have a large volume of rentals but the headline certainly has impacted on tenants. The important thing to remember there are a large number of worn out rental properties and if tenants want a nice home with insulation heat pump and refurbishment work they will being paying in the top 25% of rent range shown on rents on Department of building website.

The long hot summer has been great in the Bay with record number of cruise ships and vistors to the bay enjoying the long hot summer. The mood in the city is good and has reflected onto our clients.
With many new managements coming on this year. In a deregulated market it is necessary to give landlords clarity of how Prime Rentals will manage their property through all stages of the property management process.
There is a huge volume of rentals at start of year. Why is everyone moving. On examination this was not the case, we clearly had a larger share of the rental market. January has been our busiest January ever and great effort was put in by all staff. They were rewarded with a specail day on the lake in Rotorua.
We have seen more and more of tenants that dont' have a clear picture of how their tenancy runs.
