To be eligible to enter the draw to purchase a whare, all applicants must:
If two or more people would like to apply they may do so as a joint application.
Joint applications may include an applicant that is not a registered member of Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei if they are married to or in civil union or de-facto partnership with a registered member of Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei.
At least one applicant must be a New Zealand citizen or New Zealand resident with a right to purchase a home in Aotearoa.
Priority will be given to applicants that are first home buyers or second chancers*.
* A second chancer is someone who has owned a whare before but no longer does, and is back in the same financial situation as a first home buyer. For example, due to a divorce.
