Landlords Link require a 4 week bond plus one week’s rent in advance.
We review the rents of all properties on a regular basis to ensure that they are fair and in line with market rates. During your tenancy there may come a time when you will be issued with a rent increase notification. We will send you the information via both post and email to ensure we have given you the correct 60 day notice period and you are fully aware that your rental amount will change and the date it will change on.
The bond is lodged with Tenancy Services who holds it in trust. Landlords Link may make a claim against the bond for any of the following reasons – rent arrears, damages, outstanding water accounts, cleaning, lawns and gardens, rubbish removal. If you and Landlords Link cannot agree on the amount being claimed, either of you may apply to the Tenancy Tribunal to resolve the matter.
After the final inspection has been completed your Property Manager will process your bond refund form, including any portion that may need to come back to the Owner for repairs. Tenancy Services can take anywhere from 5-15 business days to process these refunds so make sure you come in to the office to sign your refund form as soon as you are notified that it is ready so we can get this process moving for you.
As soon as all payments have been made and the property is ready.

Periodic tenancies are common throughout New Zealand. In these situations tenants can provide the Property Manager with 28 days notice to end the tenancy and vacate the property.

If one or more members of the tenancy want to move out, but some wish to remain and add new tenants to the household, then we can facilitate a change of tenant for you.
Your Property Manager will do the first inspection after 6 weeks and then every 12 weeks after that.
You are welcome to be present during the inspection, especially if you would like to discuss a concern about the property with your Property Manager, but you do not need to be – don’t feel you need to take time off work to be home for your routine inspection.
In order to conduct these inspections the Property Manager must have access to all rooms, garages and outbuildings.
We will notify you by post or email at least one week before your inspection date.
If you choose not to be there, don’t worry. We have an office set of keys that the Property Manager will use to gain access to the property, but please ensure you have not deadbolted the doors or obstructed their access in any way.

The short answer is yes, however, the landlord needs to see out the tenancy period. The new landlord can end the tenancy on the expiry of the fixed term if they wish, only if they’ve signed prior to 11th February 2021. If they signed after this date, then 63 days notice if the owner wants to occupy must be sent in advance of this expiry date advising you of this intent.
