stock transfer

In the Australian context, this generally refers to two different types of transactions used by governments to transfer management of housing assets:

  • ‘management outsourcing’ transfers where public housing management is contractually delegated to a community housing provider for continued use as social housing (regardless of whether a new lease has been signed by the tenant)
  • ‘asset transfers’ (or ‘title transfers’) where the ownership of public housing assets (tenanted or vacant) is transferred to a Community Housing provider for use as social housing.
