Once the planning and study phases are complete, we will meet with you to approve your housing development and sign the necessary agreements for the transition to the construction phase. You are responsible for maintaining your lease in accordance with your lease and the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008. Just like tenants who live in private rental properties, you are expected to meet the terms of your rental agreement, be a good neighbor and take care of public residential property at all times. The state tenancy agreement is a legal contract between the department (also called landlord/owner) and you, the tenant. The agreement outlines the rights and obligations of you and the department. An SDA apartment has another great advantage, as it attracts tenants who prefer a much longer rental period, which offers you to the investor more stability and comfort in knowing their investment for longer periods. Some leases are 10- 5- and 5 years by the main lease agreement with the licensed SDA management company. The Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 clearly states what is included in this agreement. Yes, you should have gotten a copy of the agreement after you signed it. A breach of the agreement may result in a dispute between you and the service. If it is not terminated, the department or you can take steps to terminate your lease. As of July 1, 2019, the residency rights of Victorian participants in the NDIS with SDA are protected by new provisions of the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (RTA) and regulated by consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV).

Recent amendments to the RTA and the 2006 Disability Act reflect these changes and provide a number of new thinking for ADS providers. These suppliers are also subject to the NDIS quality and warranty framework and the practical standards associated with it. A significant change is the requirement for SDA providers and SDA residents to enter into either an SDA residence contract or a housing lease. Cav will soon issue final participant information statements and agreements that suppliers can use to comply with this new legal requirement within 31 December 2019. A violation of the agreement occurs when part of the agreement is broken. This not only saves you a lot of time and money for regular searches, participant interviews and real estate inspections, but will also ensure greater security to ensure that your SDA investment is properly managed. Only NDIS-registered housing providers can receive SDA payments. Specialized housing for people with disabilities is a highly specialized and complex area and should only be managed by NDIS-approved organizations. We will try to respond to your message as quickly as possible. The problem was identified by the government and a solution was created to invite investors (the private sector) to take the lead in owning suitable real estate and, in exchange, to obtain higher rental income compared to other real estate, which is also supported by the government by the NDIS and which is a long-term game of 20 years.

This means your opportunity for social investment, which is doubled as a ”feel and do good” investment in creating a win-win investment. The federal government`s nDIS/SDA Property initiative aims to help people with disabilities find more suitable housing; where an investor like you puts your hand to own an SDA property that is deliberately built as normal housing, but with modifications so that your tenants with disabilities can lead as normal a life as possible and within their larger communities. A ULH investment property is fully developed for all public spaces once completed. How the figures might work is that an SDA property could be paid under the NDIS within 8 to 10 years at current interest rates based on high rental yields. Depending on the classification of the apartment, the number of lo
