The Make Renting Fair Alliance is a coalition of Western Australia’s peak housing bodies and stakeholders, and people who rent their home.
We are working together for secure, affordable and healthy homes for more than 700,000 West Australian renters.
Recently the Government announced its changes to the Residential Tenancies Act - with mixed reviews.
It is great news that we will finally see rent increases stabilise to once every 12 months, and that rent bidding (offering above the advertised price when there are multiple applications) will be banned. And we all know that not having to give up your pet to keep a roof over your head is a huge step forward.
However, we need to ensure that in the midst of this rental crisis, people feel secure in their homes, and these changes won’t see an end to ‘no reason’ evictions - one of the key elements of Make Renting Fair’s campaign asks.
The Government have left the door open for this change to happen soon - and we have to keep the pressure on. States like the ACT are leading the charge with rental reforms and we can’t let WA fall behind.
The Make Renting Fair campaign is collecting compelling evidence to present to decision makers on the need for reforms to WA's rental laws.
Your story is key to making this happen. We want to hear from you!
