The law has changed - are you prepared?

As you're probably aware, the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 has now taken effect.

This means all businesses - including yours - must comply with the new legislation and regulations.

According to the law, property managers must have and use a health and safety system, and only use authorised tradespeople.

If you want to make sure you have solid safety systems in place, make sure you have a TPS portal account.

Over 600 property management offices have opened their TPS portal accounts, and have access to a range of training and resources that will help them comply with the new legislation. Are you one of them?

Once you have a TPS portal account, the next step is registering your office and completing your training. That means other property industry professionals can see you're compliant by searching the public register on to Tenancy™.

If you haven't yet opened your portal account, click here.

Total Tenancy is Here

25 years ago we started creating resources for property managers. Some years later the personal computer was invented so we were able to compile these. Two decades later and we now have a platform for providing access to all these documents. Total Tenancy gives property managers the latest version of each of documents, resources, and tools in one place. This software program means property managers can search a particular tenancy issue, read the relevant section of the Act, review plain English translations, watch videos explaining each section, and then download the specific resource that solves the issue. This platform also includes unlimited access to The Platinum Program property management training, which has over 20 hours of REAA non-verifiable training.

The Tenancy Practice Service is New Zealand’s largest supplier of property management contracts. Total Tenancy includes full access to these contracts.
