Part 4 Section 79
79   Change of tenants after AVO
(1) Termination of tenancy On the making of a final apprehended violence order that prohibits a co-tenant or a tenant from having access to the residential premises, the tenancy of that co-tenant or tenant under the residential tenancy agreement is terminated. Such a termination does not affect the tenancy of any co-tenant not subject to the order.
(2) Tribunal may recognise occupant as tenant after AVO The Tribunal may, on application by a remaining occupant or co-tenant, make an order recognising the remaining occupant as a tenant under the residential tenancy agreement, if the tenant, or a co-tenant or a former tenant or co-tenant is prohibited by a final apprehended violence order from having access to the residential premises.
(3) Orders An order under this section may vest a tenancy over the residential premises in an occupant on such of the terms of the previous residential tenancy agreement as the Tribunal thinks appropriate having regard to the circumstances of the case.
(4)  An application for an order under this section may be made at the same time as any other application or during proceedings before the Tribunal or independently of any such other application or proceedings.
(5)  A Tribunal may not make an order under this section in respect of a social housing tenancy agreement unless the remaining occupant meets any applicable eligibility requirements of the social housing provider for tenancy of the premises.
