7.6.56 No Service residence available

7.6.57 Member rejects a reasonable offer

7.6.58 Member buys a suitable own home


Example: The member applied for a removal well in advance of the uplift date. The removal truck broke down on the day and the removal had to be rescheduled for the next week. The CDF approved a longer period because the member exceeded the seven day limit under paragraph 2.b for reasons beyond their control.

Non-example: The member purchased a suitable home but then delayed asking the approved service provider for a removal. When the member did ask for a removal, the removalist was booked for three weeks in advance and so the removal could not occur within the seven days after settlement. The member would exceed the limit under paragraph 2.b. for reasons within their own control.

7.6.59 Dependants or adult children not at the Service residence


Example: A member becomes a member without dependants because their spouse dies and they have no children.
