We all need a home we can count on
Having a stable place to call home has a profound impact on our families, our children’s schooling, our connection to our local community, and our plans for retirement.
But we’ve heard from families across Australia who are struggling with the uncertainty and instability of renting. Many are living in homes that desperately need repairs, yet they're afraid to request them out of fear of a rent increase or being unfairly evicted. People are stressed about the emotional and financial costs of having to constantly uproot and find a new place to live.
It’s time we had a national conversation about renting.
State and territory laws are piecemeal and offer different protections depending on where you live. We’re calling for fair and consistent rules that apply to everyone equally. That way, every Australian has the security they need to create homes, build lives and raise families.
