Protection for park residents
MORE than 30,000 people living in residential parks across the state will have greater protections and more access to information about park operations under new reforms.
Minister responsible for Fair Trading Victor Dominello has released the final regulation giving effect to the amended Residential (Land Lease) Communities Act that will commence on November 1 this year.
Key elements of the reform include:
Standard compulsory site agreements and condition reports which give residents clear information about fees, maintenance and utility charges;
Mandatory education for all new park operators;
The ability for Fair Trading to remove non-compliant operators from the industry; and
Enforcement and disciplinary action against operators to be published on the Fair Trading public register.
