Treat All Your Tenants Fairly And Politely

Posted by Impression on 01, Apr 2019

A landlord who displayed prejudice towards Māori has recently featured in the local media.

It’s important to understand that any discrimination towards tenants, buyers or vendors is in breach of New Zealand’s Humans Rights Act. When you are providing any service or housing and accommodation, you cannot discriminate on the basis of sex, religion, ethnicity or disability, among other things.

If you use discriminatory language, it’s possible the recipient will complain to the media and you will be fielding calls from journalists, and potentially be fined by the Tenancy Tribunal. Make sure you treat your tenants fairly – the same rules need to apply equally to everyone.
