MBIE have advised that a new and improved Tenancy Tribunal application form will be available online on 17 November 2014 to add to processing efficiencies of MBIE. The old paper formats will be phased out by 15 December 2014.
FastTrack Resolution is also a new service and is available through the new online form. It is specifically designed for rent arrears.
The new online forms require a RealMe login to be obtained via www.realme.govt.nz. MBIE have advised that for offices where more than one person lodges applications, functionality to create administration access and be able to delegate to others to submit their applications have been added to the RealMe log in set up process. This will allow for a data bank so offices can view what applications are in place with such applications being visible for 60 days. Drafts can also be saved and worked on for 7 days.
