7.6.56 No Service residence available
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 Resident family or recognised other persons not at the Service residence
Example: A member becomes a member with no resident family because their partner dies and they have no children.
