Housing—tenancy matters(Question No 698)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, upon notice, on 18 October 2005:

What is the intent and scope of the Tenancy Review Committee;

Why will the Committee, if constructed completely of Housing and Community Services staff, be given the ultimate authority to decide whether or not a tenancy matter should be referred to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The Tenancy Review Committee (TRC) is a final internal review mechanism prior to the referral of tenancy matters to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal.

The TRC reviews cases identified for referral to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal due to rental arrears and other issues associated with compliance with the Residential Tenancy Agreement to assist public housing tenants to sustain their tenancies.

The TRC advises the Executive Director of Housing and Community Services, who as the delegate for the Commissioner for Housing, approves referrals to the Residential Tenancies Tribunal. Tenants, as a party to the Residential Tenancy Agreement, are also entitled to have matters listed for consideration by the Residential Tenancies Tribunal.
