Taking the First Step
- Get copies of proof of income and identity for everyone on your Registration of Interest Form
- Think about the areas in which you want to live and the type of accommodation you are looking for (house, unit, disability modified)
If you are interested in community housing you can identify your preferred community housing provider. This organisation will become your primary contact organisation for all enquiries related to your registration.
Once registered with your primary contact organisation, other community housing providers with houses in areas you have identified may also contact you.
If you would like IDAA to be your primary contact organisation please give us a call. IDAA will talk to you about your needs and assist you in completing the Registration of Interest Form.
Tenants of IDAA properties often have Special Needs which need to be discussed and documented on a Housing Needs Assessment. The Housing Needs Assessment will include a discussion about any housing modifications that you might require.
