Information for public housing tenants

Maintenance is a shared responsibility between tenants and Homes Tasmania. It is a condition of your lease that you look after your house.

Inspections of Homes Tasmania’s properties are carried out regularly. Homes Tasmania’s will repair and replace fixtures as appropriate while you are a tenant.

You are responsible for paying for repairs due to damage caused by negligent or careless actions by you, members of your household, pets or guests. This includes damage caused because you did not tell Homes Tasmania something needed to be fixed.

It is up to you to let us know if anything needs fixing around your home.

If you are unsure about any issue relating to repairs or replacement, call Homes Tasmania to discuss on 1300 665 663. You can phone us during office hours from 8:45 am to 5 pm, or any time for emergency maintenance.
