Reform of the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 (RTA)

01 November 2018

Public submissions on the reform of the RTA closed on 21 October and Quinovic Group Office, along with a number of its franchisees, have made submissions.  The review is designed to ensure that the law governing New Zealand's rental market strikes an appropriate balance between protecting a landlord’s interest in their property and ensuring tenants receive fair rights for the rent they are paying.


The reforms aim to:

  • improve tenants’ security and stability while protecting landlords’ interests
  • ensure the law appropriately balances the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords, and helps renters feel at home
  • modernise the legislation so it can respond to the changing trends in the rental market
  • improve the quality of boarding houses and the accountability of boarding house landlords.
