Welcome to the tenancy section of our website. We offer advice and information for landlords and tenants who rent their homes. We administer the Residential Tenancies Act 1986. We receive and hold bonds until the end of a tenancy, we provide dispute resolution services, and we administer the State Housing Appeals Authority.

MBIE is looking at ways to improve this website, with the aim of making it easier to find the things you need. To help us understand which things you need to find on the website, you may be asked to participate in a short 4 question survey. The survey is anonymous and no personal information will be collected. If you would like to know more about the survey please contact 0800 TENANCY.
