(1) This section applies to social housing tenancy agreements under which the landlord is the New South Wales Land and Housing Corporation.(2) The Tribunal must, on application by the landlord, make a termination order if it is satisfied that the tenant has been found guilty of an offence under section 69 or 69A of the Housing Act 2001.(3) Before making an application, the landlord must advise the tenant, by notice in writing, of the decision to do so and the grounds on which the application is to be made. However, the landlord may make an application under this section without giving the tenant a termination notice.(4) The Tribunal may make a termination order under this section that takes effect before the end of the fixed term if the social housing tenancy agreement is a fixed term agreement.(5) The Tribunal is not required to make a termination order under this section if the tenant satisfies the Tribunal that there are exceptional circumstances that justify the order not being made.(6) If the Tribunal does not make a termination order as a consequence of subsection (5), the Tribunal must provide written reasons for the decision.
