29 November 2017

And the winner is…

The Southland Warm Homes Trust (SWHT) is pleased to announce the winner of its 2017 Southland Property Management Company of the Year Award is Pride Property Management for the second consecutive year.

The award was presented to Pride Property Management at a function on Wednesday 29th November 2017.

Southland Warm Homes Trust Chairman, Jim Hargest said the award recognises property managers who are actively improving the living conditions of tenants and supporting the vision of the SWHT.

 “Pride Property Management has continued to be proactive in helping make healthier living environments for tenants.  They have been engaging with landlords and promoting energy saving ideas with tenants.  They have also been actively insulating many of the properties under their management,” he said. 

This is the second year the award has been offered and a range of entries were once again submitted from across the region.

“All the entries had a strong focus on improving the energy efficiency of rental properties and meeting the Tenancy Services rental property insulation regulations.  The Trust was impressed by the effort and commitment Southland property management businesses have towards improving the energy efficiency of rental properties, especially ahead of the July 2019 Tenancy Act legislation when all rental properties will be required to meet a high standard of insulation,” Jim said. 

Awarua Synergy General Manager Sumaria Beaton said, as the service providers to the SWHT, when working with Pride Property Management it was noted they were always proactive in ensuring the team had safe access to tenanted properties, and required Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority (EECA) subsidy paperwork was completed in a timely manner. Therefore making our job a lot easier, and building a good working relationship.

The 50% subsidy offered by SWHT and EECA on insulation costs for eligible rental properties is due to end in June 2018.  Anyone interested is encouraged to contact Awarua Synergy (0800 WARM SOUTH).
