    Ok, so I can just say I want to move into it then. And then when they move out, I decide I will just leave it vacant.

    That ok then?

    Why I might want to stop renting my property is nobody’s business really. It is my property.

    Yes, I need to give reasonable notice as human beings are using it for shelter…but it is still my property. To rent or not.

    So the “human beings” use your rental property just for “shelter”, not as their home?

    Here in Auckland I think almost 50% of households are tenanted. I would surprised if some didn’t regard the houses where they live as more than just shelter. However this is Auckland so expectations may be quite low with respect to housing in general.

    It is irrelevant whether you want to refer to it as it actually is (shelter) or use an emotive term (home).

    The relevant point is that I own the shelter/home.

    And I should have an avenue to stop renting it out to someone without having to make up a reason.

    Yes, a reasonable notice period needs to be given. I think 3 months is reasonable.

    You are trying to make a ‘big thing’ out of nothing. You should have gotten a job with Paddy while the going was still good if ‘making news’ is your business.

    Yes - this seems to be what National and the Coalition of Chaos is working on.

    That's what you voted for - you were warned.

    I have been a smallish landlord for many years and have had to evict 1 tenant for behavior - they were evicted via the TT not just 90-day no-excuse.
    Have good properties, choose good tenants and all is good so far as I've experienced.

    My point earlier - LLs should be incentivized to build new rather than recycle chairs on the Titanic.
    The previous tax deductibility settings (Labour) for new houses did this - the new settings don't.

    Exactly. Property rights. You own the property. You can do what you like with it.

    3 months is perfectly reasonable.

    Heck next Bjauck and others will be advocating that your personal vehicle is actually not yours and certain conditions are attached.

    You rightly point out that it is totally irrelevant whether it is a shelter, home or haven. That's just emotive nonsense and playing semantics.

    Either we have property rights or we don't.

    p.s I am a small landlord. Most tenants are great. But you need to be able to be selective and also not have to make up a BS reason if you want your house back.
    I look after tenants that look after my place. It's symbiotic and works well. They don't get annual rates increases and if there is one it is well below market.
    The tenants that do not look after the place, out they go.

    I have zero problem or issue with voting them in vs allowing the likes of you voting Hapless Hipkins & his useless incompetents back in for another term to drive NZ rapidly into 2nd world status within the next 2 years.

    This government will slow down the decline but the cancer of racial, social & economic divisions induced by Labour over the last 6 years is too widespread and terminal to reverse.

    Meanwhile, best we encourage our hardworking young, skilled and experienced to migrate to Australia for a better future for them
    & their families.

    Eviction?

    90 days’ notice to vacant is not eviction - it is perfectly reasonable and allows for plenty of time to seek alternative accommodation.

    As for home, any accomodation can be home when a tenant is renting. It is how they make it a home.
