Welcome to Otautahi Community Housing Trust. We provide community homes for those most in need of housing in Christchurch. This e-form allows you to register your interest in living in an OCHT home. Before you go any further, have you applied for housing on the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) Housing Register?
OCHT cannot progress your application until you are registered with MSD. The fastest way to find out if OCHT can offer you a home is to call MSD on 0800 559 009.
Have the Ministry of Social Development sent you a letter to confirm that you are on the Housing Register?
- We will discuss your housing need with MSD now that you have confirmed you are on the Housing Register.
- Before we talk to MSD please complete this e-form. If you need help to complete the e-form, call us on 0800 624 456.
