Under new rules, landlords would have to give a reason for evicting tenants

Amy Ridout Reporter from The Nelson Mail

A bill that will revamp the rules for New Zealand's residential tenancy market has been introduced to Parliament.

One of the changes is to require landlords to give a reason for evicting tenants, if they give 90 days' notice. Under the current rules, no reason is required.

Do you think landlords should have to give a reason to evict tenants? Have you ever been evicted without reason?
