Property management company Oxygen says a scathing new report into the state of New Zealand's property rental market is not representative of its own Hawke's Bay tenants.
A Consumer NZ investigation, which surveyed more than 2000 renters, found just 35 per cent of those renting through property management companies rated their service as "high", compared with 54 per cent of those renting with private landlords.
In addition, a full 64 per cent of respondents said they only rented because they could not afford to buy a house, with as many as 38 per cent saying they had been renting for 10 years or more.
The report also concluded that there was a much higher chance for people to get a "bad deal" if they rented through a property management company.
