    Controversial laws to strengthen renters' rights have passed under urgency

    Controversial laws to strengthen renters' rights have passed under urgency


    The most significant change is to scrap no-cause evictions - where landlords can issue 90-day eviction notices without reason.

    The legislation also limits rent increases to once a year, and landlords won't be allowed to list a rental without a price attached - or tell prospective tenants they can secure it by paying more.

    Associate Housing Minister Kris Faafoi says it will improve tenants' security and stability, while continuing to protect landlords' interests in their property.
