Now in its fifth year, the Ray White Rent Event has become a significant part of our annual property management calendar and although the live component has now finished, landlords and investors can enjoy all the free resources and content that were provided – simply scroll below!
The 2020 event took on its new form as the online Landlord Academy Series, designed to upskill all New Zealand landlords through a series of free weekly online sessions hosted every Thursday evening throughout November – and you can watch each of these four live sessions below!
The Landlord Academy Series is about one thing and one thing only – free education and support for all New Zealand landlords, whether you’re an existing client of ours or not.
Over the next six months, landlords will face some of the biggest reforms of the rental industry they have ever seen. There will be almost 100 new rules and requirements implemented to the Residential Tenancies Act – all of which will have a big impact on a landlord’s responsibilities and the way they must operate.
Are you ready for the biggest changes we’ve ever seen?
Are you prepared?
The Landlord Academy Series is here to help!
Although registrations to our live online event are now closed, you can watch each of the four sessions below and request all of the many free resources we created through your local Ray White property management office.
As landlords’ legislative requirements continue to increase so does the risk of the increasing fines that are possible, however, the solution is easy… Your first step is through education and understanding and that’s where we are here to help.
Across New Zealand we manage more than 19,000 properties with an asset value of over $12 billion – it’s our job to know what’s coming and to help prepare our landlords for change.
The way we see it, if we can help provide free education and tools to help landlords manage this change, then not only is your risk removed but your tenants also see better outcomes themselves – it’s a win-win for everyone!
The Landlord Academy Series is presented by Zac Snelling, our New Zealand Head of Property Management, alongside a unique VIP guest each week with specific experience in the residential tenancy space.
The series can educate landlords not only on their current legislation requirements, but also two of the biggest changes that are on their way, being the upcoming Healthy Homes Standards and the hugely significant RTA Amendments Act 2020.
With each of the four live sessions lasting for approximately 45 minutes (including Q&A), the series is designed to provide easy, bite-sized pieces of education to help landlords understand everything you need to know, and point you in the direction to find out more.
Special guest: Peter Wolfkamp – ‘The Resident Builder’ Newstalk ZB
In this opening session, we provide a broad overview to help both landlords and their tenants achieve better tenancy outcomes. In particular, we highlight existing compliance requirements, how to manage these, and the risks associated if you’re not ticking the right boxes
Special guest: Joanne Rae – Real Estate Institute of New Zealand
The second part of our series delves a little deeper into the upcoming legislation and in particular, the Healthy Homes Standards. We clearly outline what’s required and the manageable steps you can take to help get your property sorted.
The third part of our series dives into the RTA Amendments Act 2020, explaining how this will affect landlords when the majority of its components take effect in February 2021.
There are significant changes on their way for landlords, including new rules around minor alterations, termination notices, rent increases, lease assignments, increased financial penalties, and more.
The fourth and final part of our series takes a deeper look at the financial side of property investment, and the real virtues that remain in this space.
There has never been a better time to grow a rental portfolio, however, some investors still make the same common mistakes which this session is designed to help prevent.
