CSHA Community housing data collection manual 2001-02Comments:
Head-leasing is commonly undertaken in the community 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 CSHA data collections.
