Community Housing Providers can be faced with a number of different situations under the new previsions of family and domestic violence in the Residential Tenancies Act 1987. Under the new provisions a tenant experiencing family and domestic violence has options to stay, go, secure and resolve. These decisions mean new responsibilities for community housing providers.

Below are each of the various situations of family and domestic violence under the new reform your organisation may face.
