Support, advice and advocacy for tenants.
Tenants’ Protection Association (Auckland) (TPA) is an organisation providing support, advice and advocacy for tenants throughout the Auckland region and beyond. We are the only organisation working solely with tenants and we work with all ages, genders, ethnicities, cultures and classes. We support tenants in disputes with landlords in both the public and private sector. We offer training and education in the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 and the Residential Tenancies Amendment Act 2010 to community organisations and individuals.
We have a manual and an information pamphlet available, the pamphlet is free and manual is $20.00. We prepare tenants for Tenancy Tribunal hearings and accompany them when possible. Our preferred contact is by telephone as in most instances we need to ask questions about the issue and email communication is usually too slow to gain an understanding of the situation.
We are open every weekday morning.
