These reforms were announced last year. Now, after months of consultation, whatever that means in this instance, they are finally ready to be introduced to Parliament.
Here’s hoping there are no delays – the Government’s lack of majority in the Upper House, and the tight timeframe (this is the fourth-last Parliamentary sitting week for the year) – notwithstanding.
These reforms mean a number of good things for renters – new protections for people escaping family violence, new protections about pet ownership, new rights about minor modifications, and other reforms. See the announcement here if you want more details. See here and here for news media about it.
