An FOI request by Tammy Franks MLC uncovered the latest data concerning empty, tenantable Housing Trust properties all over South Australia. The reasons for properties to be vacant and tenantable include:
We are hoping that the new Government will cease the sell-off of public housing, and open up these empty properties to our most vulnerable members of society who need a safe place to call home.
- Housing SA is undertaking minor maintenance prior to re-letting
- The property is being offered to a suitable household
- Time required by new tenants to give sufficient notice to current landlords
- Time required to organise support services for tenants entering the property
