About Cost Rental

Cost Rental

Cost rental is a new form of long-term sustainable home rental which is supported by the Department of Housing, Local Government, and Heritage.

Cost rental is not-for-profit housing where the rent you pay covers the cost of the construction, management, and maintenance of your new home. Cost rental offers you a long-term, secure tenancy that is more affordable. We’ve managed to achieve rents that start at 25% below the average local area rent. Cost rental is a long-term rental option.
