Event description
Tenancy Law: Advocating for Public Housing Tenants

About this Event

Please email evolve@evolvevents.com.au to express your interest for this course in Semester 2.

All tenancies in WA are governed by the Residential Tenancies Act, however public housing tenants have specific additional provisions in the act that apply only to their agreement. In addition public housing tenants are also subject to the ‘Housing Authority Rental Policy Manual’ which sets out a number of internal rules that apply to public housing tenants in addition to the Act. These include rules governing income eligibility, disruptive behaviour, and property allocation amongst others.

Due to all the above, advocating for public housing tenants can sometimes be a complex process. This unit of training provides an overview of issues that can often present when advocating for public housing tenants and how these can be managed. Delivered by a specialist solicitor from Tenancy WA this unit covers:

  • A summary of the provisions in the Act specific to public housing tenants
  • A summary of the relevant areas of the Housing Authority Rental Policy Manual which commonly impact on tenants
  • Resources and services available to assist public housing tenants having difficulty in their tenancy
  • Tips and skills for negotiating with Housing Authority officers on a tenant’s behalf

This course includes:

  • Engaging, up-to-date materials.
  • Take-home reference package and free online resources.
  • All day catering and beverages - with dietary needs catered for.
  • Post-course contacts for help and advice.
  • Certificate of attendance.
