The full list of how many properties New Zealand MPs own

  • 02/12/2021

National leader Christopher Luxon's wealth has sparked curiosity with the revelation he owns seven properties - one in Auckland's Remuera is worth more than $7 million. 

But Luxon isn't the only Member of Parliament who struck luck in the property market. While many Kiwis face the prospect of never owning a home thanks to skyrocketing house prices, only a handful of MPs don't own a property. 

MPs who don't own a property include Green Party co-leader Marama Davidson, and fellow Green MPs Chlöe Swarbrick and Ricardo Menéndez March. 

Labour minister Peenie Henare had no property to declare, and neither did Labour MPs Helen White, Naisi Chen, Kieran McAnulty and Ibrahim Omer. The same goes for ACT MP Damien Smith. 

All the other MPs have a stake in property.
