​​​​​Drawing the line – how many state houses do we need?

Alan Johnson, Social Policy Director at The Salvation Army in NZ, presented at an Australasian Housing Insititute event in Auckland on Thursday 21st July. Alan's presentation provided a critique of the Government’s stance that the overall numbers of state housing should reduce to 60,000 by 2017. He argued that the provision of state housing should be based on the type and extent of need and a clear understanding of the interventions required to address this need.

​It’s renters versus the rest

The latest HRV State of Home Survey has found mould is prevalent in almost half of New Zealand’s rental homes and renters take more sick days than the national average. Some landlords are refusing to address tenants concerns about the cold, damp and mouldy state of their homes with 56% of property owners doing nothing when contacted about housing issues by tenants.

New Zealand housing and the United Nations sustainable development goals

The United Nations has identified 17 global goals for sustainable development to achieve transformational change throughout the world by 2030. These goals include ending poverty and hunger and the things we would want to see in a fair and equitable world. They also include 169 targets. So how does this affect New Zealand’s community housing sector?

Building a model for alternative procurement

CHA asked Deloitte to assist with setting out an alternative model for community housing provider involvement in stock transfers that delivers on several fronts:​​ a local response to delivery; improved tenant choice across the housing continuum; increases supply of both social and affordable housing; and is phased to support provider growth and builds capacity. We need member feedback on this please.

AA home insurance survey has some interesting findings

In a recent AA Insurance Home Survey, which interviewed 500 landlords throughout New Zealand, almost 90% were concerned that tenants might damage their investment property. This was followed by the possibility of missing rent payments (88%) and then contamination of the property by consumption or production of illegal drugs (87%). Yet over the past 12 months to 31 May 2016, the most common type of landlord claim is for accidental loss or damage to property (25%) for such things as a hole in the wall or stain on the carpet, not for intentional damage. The average cost for insurance claims from landlords is $3,000.

The Auckland market has increased 16.1% year on year and 4.7% over the past three months. Values there are now 78.4% higher than the previous peak of 2007. When adjusted for inflation values rose 15.6% over the past year and are 52.1% above the 2007 peak. The average value in the Auckland region is now $975,087.
