Important message to all members

12 May 2020

The Property Institute of New Zealand offers a huge thank-you to members for their patience and understanding during these extraordinary and uncertain times.

As we emerge from Alert level Three on Thursday we will be entering into a new phase with many challenges still to overcome before our lives begin to start returning to what will be a new normal.

Our advice during these unsettled times has been consistent and clear and we continue to encourage you to follow the Government guidelines, maintain social distancing and exercise caution when interacting with anyone outside your 'bubble'.

Our older members may also want to take extra precautions given the risk to their personal health, and again, we urge you to seek out the Government advice and ensure your own health & safety protocols are followed.    

On behalf of the Institutes it represents the Property Institute has issued a number of updates to members which are available on our website HERE

These resources include advice to the New Zealand Institute of Valuers regarding Valuation as an Essential Service, as well as FAQs, guidance on Valuation Uncertainty Property Inspections and a number of other helpful tips.

Our strong emphasis on education is continuing in the coming weeks and we have an exciting range of online events well advanced.  Do regularly check our events page for the latest additions
