Sector of landlord

Sector of landlord refers to the type of organisation or person from whom households rent or lease private occupied dwellings. It can be the private sector (private person, trust, or business) or the state sector (for example, Housing New Zealand Corporation).

A rented private dwelling is a dwelling that is not owned by the usual resident(s) and for which the usual resident(s) makes rent payments.

A leased private dwelling is a rented dwelling for which the owner has granted another person or group of people exclusive possession for an agreed time period.
