Affordable homes from a good landlord.

Trust House Rental Housing provides affordable rental homes to low income individuals and families in our communities who need them most.

Trust House owns and manages almost 500 rental homes, from 1-bedroom units to 4-bedroom houses, in Masterton, Martinborough, Featherston, Pahiatua and Dannevirke.

We have been a community landlord in Wairarapa and Tararua since 1999. And in 2014 we became New Zealand’s first registered social housing provider in the government’s new social housing scheme to make rents even more affordable for people on low incomes.


Trust House is proud to be a member of Community Housing Aotearoa (CHA). Our GM Housing & Infrastructure is currently an elected council member on the Governing Board of CHA.Community Housing Aotearoa


Want to rent your home from us?

Here’s how:

  1. Apply and meet
    Fill in an application form for rental housing and bring it in to your local Housing office with photo ID. We’ll talk with you about what home you need. Then we’ll check if any available houses might suit you. If nothing is available right away, we can waitlist you until something comes up.
  2. Check and view
    When a suitable house is available, our policy is to do a credit check for you before we take you to view potential houses.
  3. Agree, sign and move in
    If everyone agrees the terms and you’re happy with the home, you’ll be required to sign the Tenancy Agreement and submit the bond, plus advance rent. Then you can move in.

What we expect from responsible tenants

  • You keep your home clean and tidy.
  • You keep your home smoke-free, pet-free and damage-free.
  • You inform us of any repairs required (including damage) as soon as possible.
  • You are a considerate neighbour.
  • Your rent payments are kept up to date.

Why rent with us?

  • We understand that our house is your home – and we’ll make sure it’s maintained. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $20 million in improving and maintaining our rentals – things like heating, insulation, fencing, redecorating, and concreting driveways.
  • We listen to our tenants. When you call our office, you’ll speak with a local who knows your neighbourhood.
  • We have a good reputation. Officially. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment approved us as New Zealand’s first registered community housing provider in 2014. This means that if you’re on a low income and you become one of our new tenants, you might be eligible for an extra rent supplement. To find out more, contact Work and Income.

What to expect from us as a responsible landlord

  • We match the right people with the right home.
  • Most of our rents are below the national average.
  • We fully comply with our responsibilities under the Tenancy Act.
