From mid-2019 Hunter based Compass Housing Services will take on the management of an additional 1796 social housing tenancies in the Cessnock, Singleton, Dungog, Mid-coast and Muswellbrook local government areas as part of the Social Housing Management Transfer initiative.
The NSW Government will maintain ownership of all of the properties subject to management transfers and will lease them to Compass for 20 years to provide social housing.
Tenants will remain in their homes, retain all of their tenancy rights and will not pay more rent from their current income as a result of this change.
Over the months ahead, tenants will be given several opportunities to meet Compass staff and ask any questions they may have about the transfer, this includes a series of Meet and Greets sessions which will be held throughout October.
In the Meet and Greet sessions to be held in Cessnock, Taree and Singleton, transferring tenants will be treated to a presentation on Compass and the transfer process, a free lunch, prizes and giveaways.
RSVPs to 1300 333 733.
