This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These rules, which come into force on 20 June 2011, prescribe the methods for serving documents in relation to any proceedings for a unit title dispute (within the meaning of section 171(1) of the Unit Titles Act 2010).
Section 176(1) of the Unit Titles Act 2010 provides that Part 3 of the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 applies with all necessary modifications in respect of the hearing and determination of a unit title dispute by a Tenancy Tribunal. Section 116 of the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 (which is in Part 3 of that Act) authorises the making of rules to provide for, among other things, the service of documents by parties and intending parties to proceedings before the Tenancy Tribunal. Accordingly, these rules are made under section 116 of the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 for that purpose.
Date of notification in Gazette: 12 May 2011.
These rules are administered by the Department of Building and Housing.
