This Saturday most of NSW's renters will head to the ballot boxes along with everyone else in the state. We have compared key tenant demographic stats for each electorate.
We also asked all political parties and sitting independents for their response to 10 key questions about housing in NSW. For whoever forms government after the election there are pressing issues that need to be addressed.
Addressing the state’s affordability crisis and implementing amendments to the Residential Tenancies Act will be front of mind. We also ask about pets, boarding houses, residential land lease communities, building quality and more!
Lives turned upside down - evictions report released
In case you missed it!
Last week we also released our report covering tenants' experience of 'no grounds' evictions with Marrickville Legal Centre. Over 600 people shared their experiences with us!
The results add compelling new evidence to the need to remove 'no grounds' evictions in NSW.
