Information for Tenants
Housing Tasmania tenants can find information here about becoming a tenant, your rent, living conditions and your rights and responsibilities as a tenant.
Housing Tasmania has several Fact Sheets available to you.
These Fact Sheets are only relevant for tenants if your lease is with Housing Tasmania. Better Housing Futures housing organisations may have different policies.
If you are not living in a Housing Tasmania home, you need to contact your housing provider if you have any questions.
If you are Housing Tasmania tenant and would like to transfer to another property, contact Housing Tasmania to talk about your situation.
After you have spoken to Housing Tasmania and they agree you may need a transfer, you will then need to undertake an assessment at a Housing Connect office.
After you have been assessed you will receive a letter from Housing Connect letting you know the outcome of your transfer request.
