Temporary Accommodation Service (TAS)

Everyone who has had to leave their home is advised to register with TAS, even if you have a place to stay right now. Registering with TAS does not commit you to anything, but it does cover you in 3-6 months’ time if your current circumstances change. The service, run by MBIE, is working to provide a variety of temporary housing solutions including portable cabins and motor homes. These have allowed some families to live on their own properties while waiting for repairs.

Residential Advisory Service (RAS)
