OIA Reveals Housing NZ applied to evict four per cent of state house tenants in the Year to June

And so Key’s corporation parading as a government is full on selling off the family jewels. See here they’d set a target even for twelve months prior to June just gone. This is about stripping assets and removing our sovereignty. Check out our Agenda 21 in NZ pages (now Agenda 2030).

I’ve been particularly busy of late with return to Uni among other things, hence my absence with comments etc. and more reblogs from others. Trying to keep up 🙂

The NZ Herald:

“Housing New Zealand applied to evict 4 per cent of its tenants in the year to June.

The state agency has told the Herald, in response to an Official Information Act request, that it applied to the Tenancy Tribunal to end 2247 tenancies in the year to June last year, and 2591 in the latest year.

The latest number is 4 per cent of its 65,543 state rentals as at March this year – one in every 25 tenants, excluding homes rented to community groups.

Auckland Tenants Protection Association manager Dr Angela Maynard said the agency was effectively evicting people into homelessness because it was meant to be the housing agency of last resort.

“If you’ve been evicted from a Housing NZ house, the private sector doesn’t want to know you. Are they supposed to go on the streets?” she asked.
But Labour housing spokesman Phil Twyford said taxpayers would want the state agency to be “tough but fair”.
