landlord is the New South Wales Land and Housing Corporation.
Tribunal must, on application by the landlord, make a termination order if it
is satisfied that the tenant has been found guilty of an offence under
section 69 or 69A of the Housing Act 2001 .
(3) Before making an
application, the landlord must advise the tenant, by notice in writing, of the
decision to do so and the grounds on which the application is to be made.
However, the landlord may make an application under this section without
giving the tenant a termination notice.
(4) The Tribunal may make a
termination order under this section that takes effect before the end of the
fixed term if the social housing tenancy agreement is a fixed term agreement.
(5) The Tribunal is not required to make a termination order under this
section if the tenant satisfies the Tribunal that there are exceptional
circumstances that justify the order not being made.
(6) If the Tribunal does
not make a termination order as a consequence of subsection (5), the Tribunal
must provide written reasons for the decision.
