Registrar of Community Housing

Review of Decisions

If a community housing provider is not satisfied with a decision by the Registrar relating to its registration, it can ask for the decision to be reviewed. An internal review of the decision will be conducted by a senior officer not involved in making the original decision.

The provider may also apply directly to Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division of the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) for a review of the decision, whether or not an internal review has already been undertaken, in certain cases. Decisions by the Registrar that can be reviewed by NCAT are decisions to:

  • refuse an application for registration or for the variation of a registration of the entity under the Community Housing Providers National Law,
  • impose or revoke any additional standard condition of registration of the entity under the Community Housing Providers National Law,
  • issue binding instructions to the entity under the Community Housing Providers National Law
  • vary the category of the entity’s registration under the Community Housing Providers National Law
  • cancel the entity’s registration under the Community Housing Providers National Law
  • refuse an application made by or on behalf of the entity for the cancellation of its registration under the Community Housing Providers National Law
  • appoint a statutory manager under the Community Housing Providers National Law.
