Assistance for tenants and landlords
26th March 2020
With so many people losing jobs and so many businesses forced to temporarily shut their doors, my office is getting a lot of inquiries about rental assistance, the rights of tenants and landlords etc.
The emergency legislation passed by the Parliament on Tuesday offers some new protections for tenants.
I've also written to the State's Property Minister about getting some urgent rental relief for business tenants.
Coincidentally, new tenancy law changes came into effect on Monday and some of them extend to the likes of mobile home parks.
