Letter: HNZ Houses some very very good neighbours some not so good

Some thoughts about your column re: HNZ houses. My husband and I are very aware of HNZ houses in a street. YES, you can get very, very good neighbours in HNZ homes, but there are always the ones who never mow their lawns, wreck the HNZ house they are in, and have no consideration for anyone else.
They use their garages as a “party central”, not used to ever house their vehicles. Noisy parties, children playing unsupervised on the road, I could go on and on.
Unfortunately, those ones give all HNZ tenants a bad name. Yes they do lower the property value to properties owned by hard working New Zealanders who have mortgages to pay. Some of them also have fallen on hard times, but they have got themselves back up. They look after their properties, and consider others around them.

Name supplied.


Too quick to judge?


Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
