While people are in crisis accommodation, SSI Housing can offer a Tenancy Brokerage service to assist referring organisations to secure long-term affordable housing for their clients.
The service includes:
- assistance in finding and applying for a property
- assistance with applying for bond and advance rent through NSW Rentstart (for eligible clients) and assistance in connecting utilities
- support to negotiate initial repairs, terms of lease, and other reasonable terms and conditions in accordance with the Residential Tenancy Act
- assistance in completing and returning in-going property Condition Reports
If a property with a minimum six month lease is not secured within a mutually agreed time frame, the service fee will not be charged.
