Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill

NZNO welcomes your feedback on this bill which makes a range of changes to make the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 fit for modern renting situations in New Zealand. NZNO is of the view that addressing the availability, affordability, quality, and security of rental housing is fundamental to improving population health and equity in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The provisions of the Bill aim to:

  • increase security of tenure for tenants;
  • promote good-faith relationships in the renting environment;
  • modernise and clarify the Act to reflect the modern renting market and environment;
  • enhance powers and tools for the chief executive of the department responsible for the administration of the Act; and
  • support tenants' ability to assert their legal rights.
