Our Property Services Auckland
Utilities, TV, and Broadband
You are responsible for utilities like gas, electricity, and telephone services when renting a property. You are also responsible for TV subscriptions like Sky as well as broadband connections. We can help you get connected through our industry contacts, however. Contact your property manager for more details.
We keep a duplicate set of keys to your property in our office. You can replace the locks on the property if you want but you must get permission from the landlord first, you must pay the full cost of replacing the locks, and you must give us a full set.
At the end of your tenancy, you must return all the property’s keys to us.
Changing Tenants, and Occupancy
In addition, the only people who can live in the property are those listed on the tenancy agreement (this does not include people visiting for a short time).
If you want to make a change to the tenants on the tenancy agreement, please contact your property manager.
You should expect an inspection of the property about once every quarter. We will contact you beforehand and will give you at least 48 hours’ notice. In addition, we will arrange a date and time for the inspection that suits you.
Ending Your Tenancy Agreement Auckland
Ending your tenancy at the end of a fixed term
You must give at least 28 days’ notice before the end date of the fixed-term tenancy
Ending a periodic tenancy
You must provide us 28 days’ written notice that you wish to end the tenancy.
You may be charged a fee if you want to end a fixed term tenancy before the fixed term is up. This includes paying the rent until a new tenant is found or until the end of the fixed term, whichever is first. You may also have to pay for advertising costs to market the property to prospective tenants.
By law, you can expect to pay a reasonable rent for the property you are living in. Your landlord is, however, able to review the rent on a regular basis and increase it, where appropriate, once every 12 months.
