Housing




TIO is a major insurance and finance institution, its assets exceed $400 million, with Branches and Agents throughout the NT. Playing a major role in every aspect of life in the Territory.
Territorians love to live in a uniquely Territorian style. Many houses in the Top End are elevated to capture the breeze. Verandahs, decks and paved poolside areas encourage outdoor living, while big windows, louvres and ceiling fans maximise air flow.
Northern Territory Government and Commonwealth schemes designed to assist home ownership.
The NT Government aims to help more Territorians buy their own homes through Territory Housing.
Homelessness can affect anyone. People who are homeless come from all age groups and all cultural backgrounds. Homelessness includes people who are sleeping rough, as well as people staying in temporary, unstable or substandard accommodation. Many people in the homeless cycle are between homelessness and marginal housing.
The Department of Housing delivers social housing programs including public housing, supported accommodation and home ownership.
Indigenous Housing Services are responsible for the provision or funding, administrative support and policy advice for the constructions, on going maintenance and management or Indigneous housing in the Northern Territory.
This initiative will deliver more land, put more new properties on the market and reform public housing.
The main function of the Office is to keep a Register, which contains title to all land under the Land Title Act, and to provide public access to the Register. Registered dealings are part of the title which is guaranteed by the Crown and open to public search. Some examples of dealings are mortgages, transfers, leases, discharge of mortgages and applications to replace lost certificates as to title. A fee for these services applies.
The Northern Territory Planning Commission will play an important role in ensuring that the planning system in the Northern Territory facilitates sustainable economic growth, protects environmental, cultural and heritage assets and connects people and place. The Commission's primary role is to develop strategic plans and planning policies. The Commission will undertake community consultation in preparing integrated strategic plans for regions, towns and centres. As a secondary role, the Commission will advise on significant development proposals. These proposals include projects that have a significant impact on the strategic planning of the Territory, the natural environment or existing amenity.
The Northern Territory Government is committed to providing safe, secure, affordable housing to those Territorians most in need. Territory Housing aims to provide a responsive service that is tailored to meet the particular housing needs of eligible Territorians, which includes the provision of public rental housing.
