Helen Wilkes 04-939 6058 76 Gibbons Street, Upper Hutt 2881327AG Candidate to educate on Mana values The Mana Party has chosen Tawahi McClutchie to contest Maori seat Te Ikaroa Rawhiti which includes Upper Hutt. Mr McClutchie, Ngati Porou, was born and educated in Ruatoria. His campaign is launching an effort to raise the awareness of Mana Party values, especially within the issues of environmental, employment, and social wellbeing. Check out debt level before deciding on shared living Be careful when it comes to shared debt, warns the Ministry of Consumer Affairs. A WORD OF ADVICE Whether you are setting up a flat or moving in with your darl- ing, you are going to have to talk money. It is not all about cosy evenings watching a DVD and sharing popcorn, there is the serious business of keeping the electricity on and the rent paid. And it is important to share those responsibilities -- not just paying for them, but also having your name on the contract. Because it is the person on the contract that legally has to get the bill paid. It is horrible to think about, but sometimes live-in relation- ships do not work out. And you do not want to be stuck with the lease, electricity bill, internet account and the credit contract for the fridge and television. Try to share them out evenly between both partners or each flatmate. If a flatmate moves out, the new flatmate takes on their responsibilities. If someone already has a bad credit record then that is a warning. You might think you solve the problem by putting everyone's name on all the contracts but, depending on the terms of the contract, this may mean you are all individually responsible for all the debt. That means if your flatmates disappear, the company can still ask you for all the money, which means you are left chasing those flatmates for their share. Good luck. If it is your partner that has a bad credit record then this is a chance for them to improve that by taking on some responsib- ilities. It is also a good hint that you should not take on any debt for them. Until your combined credit record improves you can avoid debts by choosing pre-pay options, saving up for household items or buying second-hand. It is a good idea to check your own credit record to make sure it is correct, especially if you are worried that someone has been getting loans in your name. You can check your credit record for free and you have the right to get information corrected. Your credit record is held by credit reporting compan- ies such as Veda Advantage (veda.co.nz) and Dun and Brad- street (dnb.co.nz). For more information about your consumer rights visit consumeraffairs.govt.nz or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
