Sign the Petition For A Better Deal For Renters

With more people renting than ever before – and for longer – it’s essential that we modernise and improve our rental laws.

Sign our petition to improve renters' rights.

Renters deserve stability, security, and decent living conditions. The NSW Government is currently reviewing our rental laws. We need to make sure that they are listening to renters and making changes that will give them a fair deal.

Renters in NSW deserve a better deal.

We need improved and modernised rental laws that recognise that more people are renting now than ever before, and for longer. All renters deserve stability, security, and decent living conditions.

We demand that you:

  • Put an end to ‘no grounds’ evictions that allow landlords to evict a tenant without giving any reason
  • Put a cap on the number of times rents can be increased each year
  • Limit the amount that rents can be increased by each year
  • Ensure that dodgy landlords aren’t able to shirk their responsibilities around maintenance and repairs
  • Give landlords incentives for sustainability measures like solar power and solar hot water that are good for the environment and reduce costs for renters
  • Help renters understand and enforce their rights by increasing funding to tenants’ advice and advocacy services

    Whilst this is not a big picture solution ( such as tackling the problem of housing affordability ) , I'd like rent increases to be monitored at least.
