The year is progressing as we manage your properties and set up new investments. With over 60 properties all over the country, our day to day interactions are many and varied.
Over the past few months we have changed the way we operate within our offices. With the three staff now spread around our three locations, we are now able to meet face to face and discuss specific operational matters more easily. We are also recruiting a new team member in Christchurch to help improve communications and assist with the ever-increasing compliance and earthquake related issues.
As overall Asset Manager for MHPL, I have based myself in Christchurch where my focus will continue to be working closely with stakeholders, including directors, tenants, banks and engineers, and concentrating on the more strategic matters.
We are very excited about our new management programme Re-Leased. An add-on to Xero, it will greatly improve our management and reporting abilities.
Processing of Annual Accounts for the 2012/13 year is now almost complete. As mentioned, the increased compliance requirements have certainly added to the workload. The need to have a 100% return of shareholder resolutions and the extra Directors’ meetings, as well as the full implications of mandatory DEE reports for all Christchurch properties continue to dominate.
Later this year and early next year we’re looking forward to several shareholders’ events and we will be in touch about the specific details.
All the best for the rest of your year
