Update on Boarding Houses Act 2012

The new Boarding Houses Act 2012, which was passed by the NSW State Parliament in October, has yet to commence.

Our latest advice from the State Government is that it will commence in stages: first, the provisions about the Boarding Houses Register in January 2013; then the rest of the Act sometime after that.

In our view, there's no technical reason why the provisions about occupancy agreements couldn't commence sooner rather than later. We're taking this up with the State Government.
