Christchurch Holiday And Short Term Rental

Travel-and-Leisure How do I rent a house in Christchurch, New Zealand, when I’m still living in South Africa? When you are making the move from another country to live in New Zealand, there are a number of things you need to organise, and one of the most important is sorting out where you will live when you arrive. Most rental homes in Christchurch, whether managed by private owners or by a property manager, require the applicant to have a current New Zealand address, a NZ credit history, and NZ landlord references.
