Understand social and affordable housing (NZ)

Summary

This article covers the fine details behind our social housing fields for properties and tenants.

This article covers:


Property

Once you have enabled the social housing setting and customised the fields you need, you can start entering answers to each question.

  • Navigate to your current properties list and edit your desired property
  • You will see a shortcut on the main screen labelled Dwelling Details
  • Click on this, and a pop-up window will display all the active questions from the list defaults
  • Questions set as required will have an asterisk next to the question name and need an answer before you can successfully save your data

Fields that have been marked as active in the list defaults area will be displayed in this window, and much like our property fields, all required labels will have an asterisk displayed next to the label name:

  • The Person Details link is located on the right-hand side of the tenant screen. This shortcut window is available within the head tenant and the additional tenant screens and contains fields that cover the resident details per tenant. Like our other labels, this window displays fields based on our list defaults and follows the required field workflow.
