Can WINZ pay rents direct to Landlord?

Question from Conrad Goodger updated on 4th October 2006:

Hi. How does one go about setting up a tenant so that WINZ pays every week rather than the tenant (who usually spends the cash before paying the rent)

Our expert Jeff Montgomery responded:

You will need to contact Work and Income for this information, see

The Department of Building and Housing provides information and guidance on building law and compliance, services including weathertight homes, and advice for tenants and landlords.
