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

    I am not a renter, but not a landlord either. Economic and social conditions are forcing especially our young people into rented accommodation and it is imperative that that growing majority is treated fairly

    Renting all your life is very difficult – it’s not a choice, rather it’s forced upon one due to financial circumstances. Therefore, please listen to our concerns that are outlined here and implement them in order to bring some fairness into the rental market.

    And legislate against residential properties being short-term let for tourists/visitors, with tenants being evicted and essential workers being forced further and further to the city limits. Paris has 78,000 properties on Airbnb. Airbnb’s spokesperson says: “Australia is the most penetrated market in the world.” Legislate against this, please!
