New research from Motu found that the level of well being of a tenant related to the length of time the tenant had been in one tenancy. The NZPIF has been advocating for the ability to provide this since February 2022
Tenants who live in public housing have better levels of well being than people in private rentals, new research indicates, and similar to people who own their own homes. The research, from Motu, found that much of that was due to the length of time that a tenant had been in a property. When someone had lived in a private rental property for a decade or two, they reported similar levels of wellbeing to those in state houses. The research was done as part of Government funded work led by Professor Philippa Howden-Chapman, of Otago University.
