Social Housing Providers

< Back to list

A social housing provider can end a tenancy agreement on certain grounds other than those outlined. Housing NSW and the Aboriginal Housing Office do
not have to give 60 days written notice to change tenant’s rent rebate.

If you want to dispute a change to your rent rebate, you can appeal to the Housing Appeals Committee (you cannot apply to the Consumer Trader and Tenancy Tribunal about it).

If your rent rebate is cancelled, you can apply to the Consumer Trader and Tenancy Tribunal for an excessive rent order contact your local Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service for details.
