On the 7 May 2009 i recieved a letter from Mr adam Cook of the DOH in which they give notice of termination of my tennancy all because i have stopped paying my water charges,1. in protest in relation to being discriminated against re differing types of screen doors and associated security matters. and 2 as far as i have gleaned from their Water Usage Policy Section 19A of the Residential tennants act 2005 (social housing) on page 6 of said document they are obliged to provide a bill outlining the literage usage and subsequent related charges. they Guestimate mine which in itself is illegal. As a tennant im only obliged to pay for any exess water thay i might use, which they cant regulate. The DOH are responsible for meeting all costs pertaining to maintaining water usage and are to work with and support tennants towards resolving any difficulty.
My bill is only $127.00 and for that they want to terminate my lease when i was luckyto get the unit i am currently in under their emergency housing scheme.
In paragraph 1 of their Water usage policy document, anypoenaltiesresulting from a breach of the DOH water usage policy sect 19A RTA 2005(social housing) are imposed and collected by the Local Water Authority and not the DOH.
So what are they comming at?
On 2/11/08 I emailed Mr Borger Mp and Mr Pearce Mp and on 3/8/08 i sent information to their feedback page.
since then i have checked out the Australian constitutiion and in sections 99, 109 and 117 i have found inconsistancies re DOH decisions. pertaining to their Duty of Care Due dilligance ect ect...
all i know is that if i own a premises , Me I aas the owner are responsible to pay the land and water rates Not teh Tennant. If i wish to charge the tennant for excess water usage then i get the water Board to send them abill outlining their water literage usage and subsequent charges pertaining to same..
Not guestimate what people use. Imagine if they used this thinking process at the petrolpumps.?? And Still Job No 5386437 re insulation to a premises in Port kembla issued on the 10/10/07 still hasnt been complied with. Even after Mr Rudds announcements re insulation.. Go figure
So now im waiting to hear back from my local politician re the matter ..hping i get to stay put.
