New Year, new Boarding Houses Register

Happy New Year, Brown Couch readers.

As the new year commences, so do parts of the new Boarding Houses Act 2012. On 1 January, the parts that establish the new Register of Boarding Houses commenced operation. (Other parts of the Act, such as those relating to occupancy agreements, will commence some time later.)

At the moment, the Boarding House Register is a slim volume. Over the next six months it should start to fill up. Proprietors of registrable boarding houses already operating have until 30 June 2013 to register. New registrable boarding houses, and new proprietors, must register within 28 days of starting operations.

For more on registration and other aspects of the new Act, see NSW Fair Trading's website.
