Residential Parks (Long-stay Tenants) Bill 2005
|Long Title||The purpose of this Bill is to -|
balance the needs of residential park residents for great security of tenure while supporting the maintenance of existing, and the development of new, residential parks; mirror appropriate provisions of the Residential Tenancies Act 1987, but recognise that this form of accommodation is different from traditional tenancy relationships and provide for those differences; include requirements for pre-contractural disclosure, to provide greater contractual certainty; require the establishment of a Park Liaison Committee (obligatory where there are 20 or more sites used for long-stay residential purposes) to enable the park's residents to assist the park operator in the development and changes to park rules and polices; and
give the parties access to a simple and cost effective dispute resolution process, outside the court system, through the State Administrative Tribunal.
