Housing SA requires each tenant to read and sign a standard 'Conditions of Tenancy' form before moving into the home. This is a contract which binds both Housing SA and the tenant to observe a clearly stated set of responsibilities.
Housing SA requires each new tenant to undergo two six month probationary periods prior to being given permanent tenancy.
Although Housing SA tenancies are not subject to all of the provisions of the Residential Tenancies Act 1995 (SA) the conditions of tenancy in Housing SA housing are broadly consistent with those applying in private sector tenancies and, where possible, Housing SA complies with the spirit of the Act.
