Patience kindly requested from tenants as Rent Review team works through influx of Change of Circumstances notifications
Access Housing is kindly requesting patience and understanding from tenants as our Rent Review team diligently works through a significantly increased number of Change of Circumstances notifications from tenants as a result of COVID-19.
Access Housing continues to do annual eligibility and rent reviews as they become due during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, any rent reviews completed that result in an increase to rent payable will not become effective until the first rent due date after Thursday 1 October 2020. If your rent payable decreases we will, as usual, apply the decrease from the date we are advised of your change of circumstances.
I hope this message finds you safe and well.
The past few weeks have certainly been challenging for Western Australians, as they have for people all over the world, as humanity collectively grapples with the insidious Coronavirus.
The Views@Home email feedback group is a new online consultation group that provides tenants with an opportunity to share their views and comment on Access Housing’s tenant communication activities and initiatives.
