Renting in Australia is not a one-size-fits-all experience. Shelter WA has sought case studies to coincide with the release of this year’s Rental Affordability Index (RAI).
Congratulations to Ainsley Jones our Graduate Policy Officer who is leaving Shelter WA to take on a new role with Ruah’s Zero Project.
Join Trish Blake, Senior Policy Officer at the Consumer Protection, in the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety on the recent legislative changes to the Residential Tenancies Act arising from the moratorium on evictions during the emergency period of COVID-19.
The WA Parliament has passed the Residential Tenancies (COVID-19 Response) Bill 2020. This means that there will now be a moratorium on tenancy evictions for the emergency period.
Shelter WA held a workshop for community housing providers and tenants who are members to discuss the critical review of the Residential Tenancies Act 1987.
There are currently two separate reviews underway on boarding and lodging. In response to both reviews, Shelter WA held a boarders and lodgers workshop.
