COVID-19 Commercial Lease Disputes: Arbitration and Mediation

Aronui Utu Iti

Ka tukuna e NZDRC tētahi ratonga utu pūmau motuhake mō ngā tautohetohe i waenganui i ngā rōpū ki tētahi whakaaetanga Whakahokohoko Arumoni i pāngia e ngā rāhuitanga a te Kāwanatanga ki te whawhai i te COVID-19.

I te mutunga o Pipiri 2021, ka mutu te kaupapa whakahaere me te kaupapa takawaenga a te Kāwanatanga. Nā tēnei take, kua whakarewaina e NZDRC tētahi ratonga whakahaere utu motuhake me te ratonga takawaenga hei āwhina i ngā rōpū ki ngā rīhi arumoni e tautohe ana mō te utunga o te reti me ngā putanga atu nā ngā maukati COVID-19. Kua whakaraupapatia tēnei ratonga utu pūmau kia āhei ai ngā rōpū ki te uru ki tētahi tukanga tohuāki, utu hoki.

Ko tā mātou ratonga utu pūmau e tāpiri ana ki ā mātou whakahere tīariari tae atu ki te aronga, te takawaenga me te manawa tohunga mō ētahi atu momo tautohe e puta mai ana i raro, i waho rānei, i te hononga rānei ki ngā rīhi arumoni. I te nuinga o te wā, ko aua tautohetohe e pā ana ki ngā tautohetohe e pā ana ki ētahi atu mea, ngā whakahōu rēti, te whakahoki mai o ngā kāinga, me te tapi, te whakakapinga me te tautiakitanga o te āhuatanga, ngā kāinga me ngā whakaritenga rānei me ngā whakaritenga.

Pāpāho

Ko te pāpāho he tukanga whakaritenga, muna, ōpaki hoki e whakamahia ai e ngā rōpū ki tētahi tautohe ngā ratonga a tētahi pāpāho pūkenga, takitahi hoki hei āwhina i a rātou ki te whakarite i tētahi whakataunga e manakohia tahitia ana e taua tautohe e tutuki ai ā rātou painga me ō rātou hiahia, ā, kāore e hiahiatia kia rite ki ngā mana ā-ture pākaha, ki ngā paerewa hapori ahuwhānui rānei.

Hei haere tonu i raro i tēnei ratonga utu pūmau, me whakaae ngā rōpū ki te pāpāho i raro i ngā Ture Pāpāho o Aotearoa.  Ka taea tēnei e ngā rōpū mā te whakaoti i tā mātou Kirimana ki te Pāpāho.

Ka tū te takawaenga i a ia anō mā te ataata, ā, ka whakatepetia ki te hāwhe rā (tae atu ki te whā haora). Kāore ngā taumata maukati e pā ki tēnei ratonga – ka taea te pāpāhotanga inā rite ngā rōpū.

Ka whakaūtia te utu mō tēnei ratonga i te $3,000 (tae atu ki te GST). E pā ana tēnei utu mō te takawaenga i waenganui i ngā rōpū e rua. Whakapā mai koa ki a mātou mō ētahi atu mōhiohio me te utu mēnā he nui ake i te rua ngā rōpū o tō tautohe.

Arbitration

Ko te whakaritenga he tukanga ture e whakahaeretia ana e te Ture Whakahaere 1996 e whakatau ai te kaiwhakahaere i ngā take i runga i te tautohetohe e ai ki te ture. Kai te herea te whakataunga a te kaiwhakahaere ki nga rōpū. 

Hei haere tonu i raro i tēnei ratonga utu pūmau, me whakaae ngā rōpū ki te whakahaere i raro i ngā Ture Whakahaere o AotearoaDRC COVID-19 (kaupapa utu kua whakapiria).  Ka taea tēnei e ngā rōpū mā te whakaoti i tēnei Kirimana ki Arbitrate.

Mā ēnei Ture e whakarato mō tētahi tukanga aronga 'tuhinga anake'. Ki tētahi atu kōrero, ka whakawhitia e nga rōpū a rātau tukunga me a rātau whakaaturanga tuhituhi, ā, kaore he whakarongo. I hoahoatia te tukanga kia hua ai tētahi whakataunga i roto i te 45 rā mahi.

Kua whakaūtia te utu o te aronga e pēnei ana (ko ngā utu katoa ko te GST):

Ko te utu i raro nei i te rēti (kāore i tae atu ki te OPEX) o te $100k e utu ana i ia tau $3,000
Ko te utu i raro i te rēti (kāore i tae atu ki te OPEX) i waenganui i te $100k me te $200k e utu ana i ia tau $4,500
Ko te utu i raro nei i te rēti (kāore i tae atu ki te OPEX) o te $200k, neke atu rānei e utu ana i ia tau $6,000
