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
