Privacy and Access to Information

Entry of Departmental Officers to a Tenant’s Home

Entry is covered by the Residential Tenancy Act 1997 (Tas), which means that an occupier must be given 24 hours notice of a Housing Tasmania officer intending to come to the property.

Tenant’s Files

The Personal Information Protection Act 2004 (Tas) provides that you can access your personal information held by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), of which Housing Tasmania is a service area. Some information may be considered under the Right to Information Act 2009, if there is other information included e.g. completed complaint forms.

The DHHS provides an application for access to personal information, which can be sent by post, fax, or email. See the personal information access site on the DHHS website for more details.
