Application Assessment

When a vacancy becomes available Active will contact applicants to explain the tenant selection process.

Active place tenants in accommodation based on a number of factors.

  • Personal circumstances (the area you wish to live)
  • If a modified property is required for wheelchair access

  • Contact you by phone to see if the property we have vacant meets your needs or whether your circumstances have changed.
  • Inform you if you are the successful applicant.
  • Unsuccessful applicants will also be contacted by Active.
Co-tenancies
A co-tenancy is where one person lives in a two bedroom property and is looking for someone to share with.

  • The current tenant will be involved in selecting the person who will move into the property with them (the applicant)
  • If the current tenant does not want to be involved, Active will select applicants based on the current tenants requirements (for example male or female, no pets, no smokers, etc).
  • Active will arrange a meeting with the current tenant and applicant. This is gives both people a chance to find things in common, discuss house rules and the possibility of sharing a property.
  • Active will contact the applicant if they are successful or unsuccessful regarding the co-tenancy.
Co-tenant Responsibilities
Active’s goal is to support good relationships in co-tenancies and promote the rights of tenants to quiet enjoyment of the property. Active encourages co-tenants to consider:

  • The current tenant will be involved in selecting the person who will move into the property with them (the applicant)
  • If the current tenant does not want to be involved, Active will select applicants based on the current tenants requirements (for example male or female, no pets, no smokers, etc.)
  • Active will arrange a meeting with the current tenant and applicant. This is gives both people a chance to find things in common, discuss house rules and the possibility of sharing a property
  • Active will contact the applicant if they are successful or unsuccessful regarding the co-tenancy
Community Residential Units
Active does not have tenant selection rights to any Community Residential Unit properties. The Department of Human Services and the Support Services manage this selection process.
