Submission to the Review of the Residential Tenancies Regulation Alternative formats available on request to PIAC - Contact PIAC
This submission draws on the experience of two projects of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC). The Homeless Persons’ Legal Service (HPLS) regularly advocates on behalf of tenants who are at risk of homelessness and individuals currently experiencing homelessness who are seeking to re-enter a tenancy. The Energy and Water Consumer Advocacy Program (EWCAP) has deep expertise in the protection of consumers in water and electricity markets. Reflecting this expertise, our comments focus on the impact of the proposed Regulation on tenants, with a particular focus on improving outcomes for disadvantaged tenants.
