RISE OF THE RENTER

NZ House & Garden - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

A third of Ki­wis are renters, so it’s about time that we stopped treat­ing rent­ing as if it’s a tem­po­rary sec­ond-class op­tion. The Ger­man model has a lot go­ing for it, we say, with longer, se­cure ten­an­cies so fam­i­lies can put down roots, and the right to dec­o­rate and make a rental house into a home. See page 38 for a story on happy renter Kelly Thomp­son.
