 Landlord tip

If your proposed tenant is under 18 years of age they are a minor. They cannot make financial contracts and if they do they can later claim they did not understand the contract you signed with them. There are 2 main Acts in law which you should use as your guide.. Minor’s Contracts Act 1969 and the
Residential Tenancies Act 1986 .

 Two possible solutions. Get ratification through the Tenancy Tribunal where a mediator will ratify that they understand, or alternatively have a parent or guardian as guarantor by adding their name to the Tenancy Agreement.



       TINZ tip 

 Most Property Managers take a photo of a prospective tenants ID when they fill out the Tenancy Application form. If you are doing this you are able to load the photo onto TINZ when you are checking your prospective tenant. For doing this you will receive a discount off the cost of the check. When filling out the Tenant Check page on TINZ it is good practise and more accurate to use the ID photo details rather than what is written on the Application Form. And don’t forget to keep your Tenancy Application privacy waivers for a minimum of 6 years – even if you don’t take them as a tenant. Any privacy complaint will require you to provide these waivers when requested.
