Neighbourly behaviour statement for public housing tenants

All public housing tenants are expected to comply with a neighbourly behaviour statement.

The neighbourly behaviour statement outlines the responsibilities of tenants, including paying rent on time, respecting public housing properties and respecting their neighbour’s right to peace, comfort and privacy. These responsibilities are part of the Residential Tenancies Act 1997.

The statement also outlines the consequences for tenants who breach their tenancy agreement.
