Your personal information:

The law provides specific guidelines on the collection, use and release of your personal information.

We use the information you give to us to:

  • work out the rent you need to pay
  • set up and administer your tenancy agreement with us
  • keep you informed about Housing New Zealand services, information and opportunities.

There are times when we need to check that the information you have given us is correct, for example when working out your income-related rent. When you fill out your application for income-related rent you sign a declaration allowing us to make those checks with specific organisations such as Work and Income, Inland Revenue, Accident Compensation Corporation and your employer or any other person or organisation you receive money from.

Housing New Zealand can also release your personal information to any other person or organisation if allowed by law.

You can ask at any time to see the information we hold about you, or ask us to correct it.
