Do WINZ pay rent into landlords account directly?
(updated on Monday, May 25th 2009)
Our Experts Answer:
I suggest contacting Work and Income directly to clarify if they will pay rent directly to the landlord where a tenant receives Work and Income assistance. You can visit the Work and Income website at www.winz.govt.nz, or contact them on 0800 559 009.
In any case, tenants who enter into a residential tenancy agreement with a landlord are responsible for ensuring rent is paid to the landlord by the due date. For more information on tenants’ responsibilities in relation to rent payments, you can contact the Department of Building and Housing on 0800 TENANCY (0800 836 262).
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.
