From the 6th of July until the 31 December tenants who have difficulty paying their rent will be able to access funds from the ‘Rent Arrears Assistance scheme’. Support via the scheme is available to a wide range of tenants, including those who are working but having trouble meeting rent payments because of Covid 19. At this stage, across all of the NZ Propertyscouts businesses, we are seeing little ‘rent arrears’ impact as a result of Covid 19. We have been expecting some increase in problematic rent arrears as the wage subsidies come to an end so the rent arrears assistance package will be a big help, we hope.
