Over 30 days = N/A*.

* The number of complaints which took over 30 days to resolve in 2009-10 is not available at this time. A data migration error occurred in the transition to the new Homenet system which prevented closure of complaints in the system from 27 April 2010 until 30 June 2010. InTACT is working with Housing ACT to resolve this issue.

(3) Housing ACT uses the complaints process to assist in the verification of alleged tenancy breaches. The recording of complaints is not the sole determinator as to whether a matter is referred to the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Housing ACT does not record data which directly correlates a complaint received by the Complaints Management Unit with breaches of the Residential Tenancies Act 1997.
