Submission on the Draft Residential (Land Lease) Communities Regulation

The draft regulations to accompany the Residential (Land Lease) Communities Act 2013 have been open for consultation. As The Greens NSW spokesperson for Housing, Jan Barham has made a submission that addresses concerns about how the regulations address following issues:

  • Exemption from requirement for mandatory education
  • Exemption relating to charges payable for use of sewerage
  • Discounted service availability charge where less than 60 amps of electricity is supplied
  • Standard form of site agreement, including site fee increases, voluntary sharing arrangements and the right to assign the agreement
  • Mediation processes that are not addressed in the regulations
