Help us get to 4,000!

The National-led government is being pressured to impose state control on property investors through a warrant of fitness regime on privately-owned rental housing.

The viability of your rental would then fall into the hands of a council bureaucrat with a clipboard and a timesheet as he inspects your property against a wide array of subjective criteria – including the imposition of new building code requirements on existing rentals.

If you see this as an attack on private property rights, then please sign this petition urging the Minister of Housing to reject the proposal.

You can read the original background paper about the vested interest environmental and public health groups pushing for a rental housing warrant of fitness HERE.

We also have updated material HERE and a detailed report HERE.

People power is the only way to fight this attack on landlords. Please spread the word to encourage private rental property owners throughout the country to become aware of the threat and join our campaign.





To Housing Minister Nick Smith

“As concerned New Zealanders, we ask that any attempt to impose state control on property investors through a Warrant of Fitness scheme on privately owned rental housing be rejected on the basis that it undermines the property rights of owners, and is based on inconclusive evidence.”
