Welcome to Common Equity (Co-operative Housing) NSW Ltd
Common Equity is a not for profit tier 2 community housing provider established in 2009 and operates the majority of its properties in the Co-operative Housing model. Common Equity has 33 Housing Co-operatives across NSW and offers accommodation in a variety of dwelling types and locations to almost 500 tenants.
A Housing Co-operative is formed by a group of people with a common interest to work together to maintain and manage housing. Members perform landlord roles (e.g. tenancy, rent, maintenance) and business roles (e.g. administration, bookkeeping). Membership requires ongoing commitment, including attending monthly and other meetings and actively participating in the management of the Co-operative. Each Co-operative manages its own member and tenant selection processes.
While we primarily support people who choose to live in Housing Co-operatives we also offer some rental accommodation in community properties to those who are seeking rental affordability outside a Housing Co-operative model.
