Water usage charging

The Aboriginal Housing Office has released Water Usage Charging Ministerial Guidelines for Aboriginal Community Housing Providers.

The guidelines apply to providers that are registered with the AHO and manage social/affordable housing. They set out the principles to be followed should a provider wish to recoup water usage charges from its tenants.

The  Water Usage Charging  Guidelines are made pursuant to Section 139 of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010, however providers are not obligated to charge their tenants for water usage.
