Dear Housing New Zealand Corporation,

I am requesting the following information regarding eviction of tenants since the implementation of the Social Housing Reform Programme in 2013:

The number of tenants who have received a 90 Day Eviction notice from HNZC each year from 2013. Out of these eviction notices:
(a) How many people were evicted from the HNZC property
(b) In percentage, what the reasons were for these 90 Day eviction notices ie. Reviewable Tenancies, meth, redevelopment etc. each year from 2013
(b) The location of these eviction notices

The number of HNZC tenants evicted because of Reviewable Tenancies each year from 2013. Of those evicted from HNZC because of Reviewable Tenancies,
(a) How many people were moved into the private rental market?
(b) How many people are now living in emergency accommodation?
(c) How many people were evicted because the house was the wrong size?
(d) How many people were evicted because the house was in the wrong location?
(e) How many people were evicted because their income was over the threshold?

The number of HNZC tenants given a 90 Day eviction notice because of redevelopment or 'regeneration' projects every year since 2013. Of those given an eviction notice for the purposes of regeneration or redevelopment:
(a) The location of the eviction notices
(b) The number of tenants re-housed in HNZC properties
(c) The number of tenants re-housed in other social housing providers

Dear Ms Cole

 

I am writing to clarify the information you are requesting.

 

Housing New Zealand ends tenancies by issuing a 90-day notice, which asks
tenants to vacate the property within that time period. An eviction is a
different process, which takes place when a court bailiff is authorised to
obtain possession of a property after the tenancy has been ended by the
Tenancy Tribunal, and the tenant has not vacated it.

 

Could you please clarify if you were looking for data related to 90-day
notices specifically?

 

Also could you please confirm that you would like this information for the
financial years 2013/14, 2014/15, and 2015/16?

 

You can contact me directly on [1][email address] or on 04 439
3743.

 

Kind regards

Alicia

Dear Ms Cole

On 10 April 2017, Housing New Zealand Corporation transferred to the
Ministry, your request under the Official Information Act 1982, for the
following information:

o The number of Social Housing tenancies ended because of reviewable
tenancies each year from 2013, and of these, how many people moved
into the private rental market or are now living in emergency
accommodation and the number of people that were moved because the
house was the wrong size, location or the tenant was over the income
threshold.

The Ministry has decided to grant your request in part, some information
will be refused under section 18(f) of the Official Information Act, as
providing it would require substantial collation. A response will be with
you around 31 May 2017, sooner if possible.
