Cost rental

Clúid Housing is proud to offer cost rental housing to the public. This new rental option is supported by the Department of Housing, Local Government, and Heritage.

Cost rental is not-for-profit housing. Your rent 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.
