SUBSCRIBER-ONLY POLL-RESULT: Should foreign ownership of homes be restricted to new builds?
Foreigners should be able to buy any house in New Zealand they want, according to a majority of NBR member subscribers.
Respondents were questioned whether foreign ownership of New Zealand homes should be restricted only to new builds. Some 62% of member subscribers think the idea should be scrapped, with only 38% believing it is a good idea.
Foreigners buying houses hit the headlines this month as New Zealand First leader Winston Peters, with support from Labour leader David Cunliffe, promoted a potential ban on foreigners buying New Zealand property.
