Definition:Help on this term

Dwellings owned by private individuals or private corporations that are leased to the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA) housing providers via head-leasing arrangements. The NAHA housing provider is usually responsible for tenant selection and tenancy management functions.

Context:Help on this term

Head-leasing involves at least two leases: one between the dwelling owner and the lessee, and one between the provider and the tenant. State and territory residential tenancies acts apply to both leases.

Collection and usage attributes

Comments:Help on this term

Head-leasing is commonly undertaken in the social housing sector, where non-Government organisations head-lease housing stock from the private sector and state and territory Governments, and sublease it directly to the tenants. It is important to identify those dwellings that are head-leased from the private sector, as maintenance and other management costs are generally incurred by the owner, and therefore may not be captured in the annual NAHA data collections.
