It is now only about 18 months to go so he better start moving soon.
Iwi chief executive Meka Whaitiri will be Labour's candidate in the Ikaroa-Rawhiti by-election on June 29.She beat five other challengers for the nomination yesterday, including high-profile broadcaster Shane Taurima.
"(However) For those who were involved in the investigation, no apology at all. Bearing in mind we found 16 firearms in Ruatoki and some of them are semi-automatic weapons and we found a loaded pistol under the mattress of one of the suspects in Ruatoki."
You are currently on a low user plan. The other option to consider is our standard user plan. Based on how much electricity you've been billed for in the past year, you will most likely be better off staying on your current plan.Righto. You're most likely better off staying with what you have, and may be better off changing?
If you expect your electricity use to remain the same, you may be better off switching to our standard user plan. This plan offers a highly daily charge and lower variable charge....
Dear ClientThat is one solution. Another is to quit worrying about wealthy overseas bidders and start focusing on how we can match them, by becoming wealthier ourselves. Whatever rule you put in place will be got around.
You can still bid at the auction and become the beneficial owner of the property, if not the legal owner. My advice to you is to enter into a acknowledgement of trust with your friend/family member who is a NZ resident that says they hold the property on trust for you, and a direction to transfer to beneficiary is also signed, but held in escrow. This direction can be actioned at any time, should the need arise. Your interest as beneficial owner can be protected through a caveat on the title. That way, you don't become the legal owner, and the NZ resident rule does not apply.
The Ovendens rented the property from Dickinson but in November, Gilmore wrote telling them he appreciated they were "good tenants" but they had to be out by January 7 because the trust wanted the property for the summer.Can't count - 90 days past November, even 1 November, is not 7 January.
An email from Dickinson's lawyer to Ovenden's, Anthony Whitcombe, said Gilmore did not represent the trust, his communication could be ignored and the Ovendens could stay.Acts without authority and as a renegade.
But on March 28, Gilmore wrote giving the Ovendens 90 days' notice.Summer has ended, yet still can't count.
He said he would inspect the property in early April. He also instructed them not to correspond any further with Dickinson who, he said, had resigned as a trustee and beneficiary of his trust and had no remaining responsibility for the property.Doesn't know the law and contradicts Dickinson's lawyer's account of things.
However, property records show she still owns a share of the house.
In an email dated April 2, Gilmore told Whitcombe he was considering ensuring "all property owners in the Lake Ohau village are provided a full reference of the type of tenant that Craig is in lying and not following tenancy agreements".Stupid, ungrammatical emails.
On April 5, he wrote to Whitcombe again, saying the Ovendens had agreed to move out and he had a recording of the discussion.Breaks the law and tells the opposing lawyer about it in an email.
He then told him: "Please refrain from continuing to making [sic] yourself look foolish."More stupid ungrammatical emails with poor spelling.
