Authority No. PAH1 for the Destruction of Housing Rental Contracts
General Disposal Authority No. PAH1 is hereby issued for the destruction of housing rental contracts. The disposal authority number PAH1 should be quoted in destruction certificates that should be submitted to the archives service once these records have been destroyed.
Local authorities should determine their own retention periods taking into account their office's financial accountability, the functional need for the records as well as any other legislative requirements.
No destruction should take
place without the assurance that the records are no longer required, that no
work is outstanding and that no litigation or investigation or request which
would involve the records in question in terms of the Promotion of Access to
Information Act or Promotion of Administrative Justice Act is pending.
