Policy on the geographic jurisdiction of residential tenancy officers
The policy on geographic jurisdiction of residential tenancy officers explains that any residential tenancy officer can investigate Applications to Directors and make decisions no matter where the rental is located in Nova Scotia.
This policy describes how residential tenancy officers can mediate disputes and conduct hearings outside of their normal geographic area of responsibility. They can also move hearings outside of their normal area if both parties agree and resources are available.
