House prices and rents have been rising faster than incomes for 30 years. This is the number one driver of poverty and inequality in New Zealand but successive governments have ignored it. TOP's vision is to hold house prices and rents stable for a generation, so incomes catch up and make housing affordable again. To achieve this TOP will:

  • Tax housing the same as all other assets
  • Introduce fairer rights for renters, so they can make their house a home
  • Introduce new legislation that will encourage more affordable inner-city housing
  • Support community providers to build affordable rental housing
  • Manage immigration so that we can build houses and infrastructure to accommodate an increased population
