CHL is one of the successful recipients of the management transfers of a total 799 Housing Trust properties in the central northern suburbs of Adelaide as part of the SA Government’s ‘Renewing our Streets and Suburbs’ initiative. In late September 2017, CHL commenced the management of 767 of these properties in the suburbs of Northgate, Northfield, Clearview, Enfield and Oakden. In March 2018 a further 32 properties were also transferred to CHL under this program.
In preparation of this expanding role, CHL has relocated its office in Prospect to provide responsive, localised and efficient services to more than 950 tenancies from the new office.
Our other programs include:

CHL proudly partnered with Investec Australia on one of Australia’s first mixed-tenure housing projects, combining affordable and market-priced housing, in the Adelaide suburb of Bowden. The ‘rent then buy’ program was specifically developed to provide a pathway to home ownership for ‘key workers’, such as teachers, health care professionals, and police officers. We were pleased to partner in this pilot project to explore new ways of making housing affordable to those who might otherwise be excluded from the housing market.
Check out the video to learn more about this great initiative.
While some of our properties are allocated to transitional housing, most of our housing is for households looking for long-term secure rental accommodation. In addition, the B apartment program at Bowden is an innovative rent-then-buy program which is assisting tenants to move into home ownership, and we hope to be able to more of this type of program in the future.
Rental in all of our properties is subsidised in one form or other, and tenants will pay a maximum of either 74.9% or 80% of market rent. (Please refer to the CHL Rent Setting Policy for more information.)
As an alternative to private rental and public housing, our housing services and partnerships with other organisations support people on low incomes to sustain dependable housing, and maximise their opportunities to live a “better” life – whatever that might mean for them.
CHL’s success in delivering positive outcomes for tenants and building stronger communities is only possible by working collaboratively with our many partner agencies.
CHL currently has a range of formal and informal partnerships in place. In particular CHL has a strong partnership with NEAMI who delivers community mental health services and with Uniting Care Wesley Port Adelaide who provide aboriginal support services for our ERA program.
Our partnership agreements vary in type and nature but generally CHL provides or manages the housing in which the partner agency provides the support for varying client needs or programs.
