Beyond Renting: Responding to the decline in private rental housing, a review of the current perilous state of the New Zealand rental housing market.
Beyond Renting is a review of the current perilous state of the New Zealand rental housing market. Author, Senior Policy Analyst Alan Johnson has identified some factors which mean that it is unlikely the private rental market will be able to provide the number of houses it has in the past and change is needed.
The report lays out options for how Government could address this situation and ensure low-income households achieve safe and secure housing. One of the options put forward, Alan has termed KiwiBuy which are a range of initiatives that enable more low-income families to get into home ownership.
We believe this report provides material for a nationwide discussion on how we can help best house Kiwi families.
