Submission to the Review of the Residential Tenancies Act 1997: Rights and Responsibilities of Landlords and Tenants


Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the Rights and Responsibilities Issues Paper (the Issues Paper) as part of the Residential Tenancies Act Review.

We have limited CHP’s comments to the issues with direct bearing on people’s risk of homelessness and difficulties associated with exiting homelessness, including discrimination, use of tenancy databases, and rights and responsibilities during and at the conclusion of tenancies.

Please note, this publication was published prior to CHP’s branding refresh in 2022.
