​Realities of Renting: Launch of The New Zealand Rental Sector report

Jul 19, 2017 | Reports

The study explores the drivers to investment and the nature of relationships between landlords and tenants. Results from a complementary study into the practices and attitudes of residential property managers in Auckland will also be discussed.

Panel presentations by:

Professor Karen Witten, Massey University

Dr Penelope Carroll, Massey University

Dr Lucy Telfer-Bernard, University of Otago

Alison Reid, RIMU.


As home ownership moves beyond the reach of a growing number of New Zealand households, renting will become a long-term, possibly permanent, proposition. The rental housing system relies heavily on the provision of stock by private investors, based both here and overseas. To ensure renting is a viable alternative to homeownership, private landlords will need to fulfil their responsibilities, as outlined under Residential Tenancies Act.


Date: Friday 4 August

Time: 10.15 – 12.00 noon

Venue: Council Chamber, Ground floor, Auckland Town Hall, 301 Queen St.
