SDA providers are required to enter into agreements with residents and residents of the SDA as part of the Commonwealth`s ongoing assistance programme. An SDA residency agreement is established when the resident needs a support person to help them understand the declaration and information agreement. You may not have the physical or cognitive ability to sign the agreement. The Residency Agreement for Specialized Housing for the Disabled (SDA) is new and aims to provide better protection for residents. Many, but not all, of the conditions contained in CAV`s information statements and agreements address the terms set out in the NDIS terms and practice standards relating to the inclusion of service contracts and areas in which participant consent is required. NDS is examining how SDA providers can make additions and/or changes to the information statement and agreements to include additional conditions necessary to streamline agreements while meeting a supplier`s compliance obligations under the three bodies NDIA, NDIS Commission and Consumer Affairs Victoria. You must use the housing contracts available on our website. You can find information about downloading agreements under Resources for Suppliers. If an SDA recipient has entered into an SDA residency agreement, the SDA provider must, from time to time, inform the resident or receive notifications from the resident. Housing declarations under the Persons with Disabilities Act are maintained until existing residents switch to new SDA residence contracts or residential rental contracts under the ATR.
The SDA Residence Agreement retains certain existing responsibilities for SDA providers previously held by disability service providers under the Persons with Disabilities Accountability Act, 2006. You enter into an SDA residence agreement if the resident understands the information statement and can sign the agreement. Visitors to the community will retain their existing powers and functions in Victoria with respect to SDA residents, who are under SDA housing agreement, including initiating tours. The takeover bid has an advocacy responsibility for the persons concerned by the communications. We have prepared information on the expectations of the takeover bid when we receive these notifications: as previously announced, NDS will work closely with DHHS and CAV in the coming months to provide information on the new legal framework. We will also develop resources and organize urban and regional forums to support suppliers. Please read the fact sheet you are interested in, as this can help you understand the role of the takeover bid after notification. You can enter into or enter into an agreement with a resident based on the disability. You can claim part or all of the deposit to cover the cost of repairing the damage.
