Part 3 Division 2 Section 28
28   Proprietor’s obligation to ensure written occupancy agreement
(1)  The proprietor under an occupancy agreement must ensure that the agreement is in writing:
(a)  in relation to agreements entered into after the commencement of this section—at the commencement of the agreement, and
(b)  in relation to agreements entered into before the commencement of this section—within the period of 3 months after the commencement of this section.
(2)  Nothing in this section:
(a)  imposes any obligation on a resident of a registrable boarding house to prepare a written occupancy agreement, or
(b)  affects the enforceability of an occupancy agreement that is not in writing or is only partly in writing.
 The Civil and Administrative Tribunal may, however, order a proprietor to enter into a written occupancy agreement on the application of a resident. See section 33.
