Take a trip to the South Auckland retirement village using dance to keep in shape

If you like to boogie, break it down, cut some shapes and shake, a South Auckland retirement village could be just the place for you.

Seven Sharp reports the residents of Manurewa's Elmwood Village have a disco every day to keep the body sharp and the mind even sharper.

The programme reckons disco dancing is the perfect way to work up a sweat, and have fun while you're doing it. 

Tamati Rimene-Sproat went to Elmwood Village to check out the disco and you can see his report in the video above.

Watch: Wellington rental agency that wanted $1400 to alter tenancy backs down

A rental agency featured on TVNZ's Seven Sharp last night over its exorbitant "admin fee" for rental properties has decided to change its policy.

A group of Wellington students were given a hefty $1400 bill after they informed rental agency Oxygen that two tenants were leaving, and two others were moving in.

"Our contract states that we can't have anybody subletting so instead of just bringing two people in and letting them pay their portion of the lease we put them on the tenancy agreement," flatmate Finn Carroll said.

An email response from Oxygen read in part: "To add a new tenant to a tenancy requires a lot more work and inevitably a letting fee will need to be paid (1 week rent + GST)."

The students' letting fee has since been dropped to $250.

Property managers Oxygen say the "admin fee" is justified due to the work needed in adding tenants to an agreement. Source: Seven Sharp
