Residential Housing

Residential housing is the primary objective of the trust and the principal service offered. We provide fully accessible homes at affordable rents. We do this in two ways for our tenants:

Community Housing Provider

Whangarei Accessible Housing Trust is a Registered Community Housing Provider (CHP),
also known as a Class 1: Social Landlord. We are one of only 80 currently registered CHPs
in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Community housing is rental housing provided by registered community housing providers
(CHPs), rather than private landlords. It is long-term rental housing, provided under the rules
set out in the Residential Tenancies Act 1986, for those in need on the Social Housing
As a CHP we provide good quality, affordable homes for long-term rental that have been
specifically designed for wheelchair accessibility to enable independent living for our tenants
with disabilities.

Affordable Rentals

We also offer discounted market rents for tenants who need an accessible home but do not
qualify for the Social Housing Register.
