Stucko or Plasterboard houses - Banks Won't Sell Your House (if selling) with Stuck O Around Your House

Matt from Henderson

Hi Neighbourly, I heard something from my family member which will shock people with Plasterboard houses or Stuck O!

Hi Neighbourly, I heard something from my family member which will shock people with Plasterboard houses or Stuck O!

Apparently, anyone now who has got Plasterboard or Stuck O houses, if you want to sell your house, the banks won't let you sell your house because of the Plasterboard or Stuck O that is around and outside of your house. Not sure if this is New Zealand issue or maybe just Auckland, not sure on the exact details though.

The picture here is just an example of what a plasterboard or Stuck O is like.

Matt

Has anyone got further ideas or more in detail about Plasterboard houses and why banks can't sell with this material?

CHRISTMAS BOOK FAIR
“The Best Book Fair in the West!”
23rd/24th November 2019
Helensville War Memorial Hall

This year the Lions Christmas Book Fair is to be held again on the last weekend of November. The Autumn Book Fair in May raised $8,670 for use in the local community, thanks to all book lovers, and we would love to better that. The Book Fair will be held on Saturday 23rd, 9am to 4pm and Sunday 24th 10am to 3pm in the Helensville War Memorial Hall.

We have once again sorted all the book before the event, as the aim of the Helensville Lions is to make your weekend of browsing as effortless and pleasurable as possible.
Non-Fiction is split into twenty separate categories, from Animals & Pets to Winemaking including one dedicated to New Zealand subjects and a large General Non-Fiction section to browse through.
Fiction is arranged alphabetically by authors from Atwood to Zusak with six special interest groups, the largest of which is the Fantasy/Science Fiction section. We also have a tremendous number of children’s books for all ages.

Books are priced to sell with paperbacks at $1, hardbacks at $2.00 and all children’s books being 50c each.

Vinyl LPs, there will be over 400 of these on offer, a generous collector’s lifetime accumulation. They cover all genres from Classical to Country. These will also be sorted into categories for ease of selection.

Plus, there is also a good selection of jigsaw puzzles, board games, DVDs, CDs and quality magazines available.

All funds raised go into The Lions Club of Helensville Charitable Trust, and are used for the benefit of the local community.

Small donations of books can be left at Burmester Realty, Helensville or larger lots, call Chris on 09 420 8527.

Please note that the last date we are accepting books for this Book Fair is Friday 15th November.

Bad landlord blames 'cheeky' tenants

For crying out loud.
www.stuff.co.nz...
It's revolting, callous landlords like this person who make it terribly difficult for the excellent landlords that are out there.
Everything this woman did was illegal according to the Tenancy Tribunal and the Residential Tenancies Act.
This following part implies that she hasn't been paying tax on any of her rentals.
"When Li asked for a written agreement, Robb said if they signed one she would need to pay tax and the rent would increase by 15 per cent, the tribunal found."
So, I think a visit from the I.R.D. for a full audit is well overdue.
Also, "I'm not bad, I'm good. I want to do good things for this country. These Chinese students know the law, in a cheeky way, they go to the Tenancy Tribunal."
Oh, so the tenants are the bad ones? You want to do good things for this country yet you are avoiding paying your taxes!!!!
Where she blames the tenants for asking for a verbal contract, rather than a written one, what a load of balderdash!! If she knows the law like she thinks she does, she would know what is required of her as a landlord.
What did she do with the bond payments I wonder?
As she is known to the tenancy tribunal, I really do believe that she along with any of her family memebrs who are helping her run this renting business, need to be thoroughly investigated by all of the appropriate departments, starting with the I.R.D.!
