We have a good track record of finding the right tenants for our high quality properties. Those people are on our books now. Plus we always look after our properties as if they are our own! Here is my handy hint of the month. Paying the rent on time is critical for owners. Our rent collection is reliable and full proof. If the rent is unpaid, we know within 12 hours and we are on to the tenant promptly. It's part of their legal responsibility to pay the rent on time, every time, and we are terriers at keeping them up to date--- 'late with the rent' is just not tolerated by Quinovic!

By JAMES GREENLAND A Titahi Bay woman has made the life members list of New Zealand's largest organ- isation for the intellectually disabled. Volunteer Lynne Renouf became a life member of IHC last month, honouring her 35 years of service to the organisation. IHC, which has been active since 1949, provides services and support for intellectu- ally disabled New Zealanders and their families. Mrs Renouf said Porirua especially ben- efited from IHC's work, because the group supported the city's many foster carers. She joins just 12 other life members, including former All Black Colin Meads. Mrs Renouf, a former primary school teacher and Labour party adviser, joined IHC Mana in 1978, one year after her son Duncan was born with Down syndrome. She said IHC had been great in supporting her, her husband, and their other son. In those days intellectually disabled people had fewer rights than today, she said. I thought, that can't be right -- there must be something more to life than this'.'' Throughout the 1980s, Mrs Renouf worked to raise awareness about intellectual disability, and fought hard for inclusive education. In 1989 her efforts inspired amendment to the Education Act, which now guarantees all children access to the school of their choice, regardless of intellectual capabilities. Mrs Renouf has performed various func- tions for IHC, as vice-president, finance officer, and chairwoman of the advocacy committee. As a court-appointed welfare guardian, she can be given legal or medical responsibility for intellectually disabled Porirua 20-year- olds who have grown out of the foster system. She said life membership was awarded to volunteers who gave a significant period of their personal time to the organisation. I feel a bit sort of awkward. Everybody who is a parent [of intellectually disabled children] spends a big amount of time volun- teering, because you have learned things you want to pass on.'' Mrs Renouf will keep working with IHC's advocacy committee to raise awareness about intellectual disabilities in our community.
