Sustaining Tenancies

Worried you might lose your rental?

LinkPeople’s free Sustaining Tenancies service is available to people who are renting in Auckland, Waikato, Lakes or the Bay of Plenty and are at risk of losing their home.

Falling behind with rent payments
We can support you to access assistance to pay the rent you owe or to work out an affordable payment plan.

Stress due to overcrowding
If you have too many people staying in your house this can become difficult to manage and cause issues with your landlord. We can support you to find solutions.

Damage to your property
If your property is damaged, really untidy, or you have too much stuff or rubbish. We can work with you, so you don’t lose your tenancy.

Disruptive and antisocial behaviour
If you are experiencing conflict with your neighbours and landlord due to noise, fighting or disruptions coming from your home, we will listen to understand what’s going on and work with you to sort out the situation.

Working with other service providers

We understand you may struggle to pay rent, keep your whare clean or are in conflict with your landlord or neighbours, because you are facing other challenges in your life.

Our team will work with you to understand your goals and support you to achieve them. This may include accessing other services, organisations and community groups.
