In November 2007, Anangu sidelined the difficult question of leases. Anangu contracted the State to manage all 400 social housing properties under an MOU between APY and the Office of Aboriginal Housing. APY invited a senior Housing Officer and support staff to reside on the Lands on a full time basis so that they could go out into the field and ascertain the necessary facts and build the necessary relationships to design a first class housing model.

This enabled public housing for Anangu to start while the difficult question of leases to the State was resolved. Leases were negotiated between July and October 2008 when a master lease was signed in respect of new and upgraded housing at Amata and Mimili.

On 31 August 2009, APY and the Minister for Housing signed off on an enhanced MOU which replaced the 2007 document providing for Anangu home ownership, public housing and community title on homelands and a minimum 20% Anangu involvement in construction and related activities.
