RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES AND ROOMING ACCOMMODATION ACT 2008 - SECT 552

Period stated in previous provision

552 Period stated in previous provision

(1) This section applies if, in a previous provision, there is a period for doing something, and the period for doing the thing started before the commencement.
(2) If there is a corresponding provision to the previous provision and both the corresponding provision and the previous provision state the same period, the period for the thing continues under the corresponding provision and is taken to have started from when the period started under the previous provision.
Example—
Section 59 of the Residential Tenancies Act 1994 and section 116 of this Act each state that a person who receives a rental bond must pay it to the authority within 10 days of receiving it. If a person receives a rental bond less than 10 days before the commencement of this Act the time for paying the rental bond to the authority continues to run after the commencement of this Act.
(3) However, this section does not apply to a process mentioned in section 550 .
Note—
Section 550 states that a process started by a person by giving a notice, or making an application or request, under a repealed Act before commencement must be completed or continued under the repealed Act.
