WA is the only Australian state left
WA is the only Australian state that hasn’t removed or committed to removing no grounds evictions, with every other state acknowledging that this practice must go.
Why is that the case? Well, the government has an unwavering stance that scrapping no-grounds evictions will spook investors - an argument based on biased data. If our government truly cares about improving the balance, they should consider the evidence put forth by the Australian Housing and Research Institute that states, “It does not support the contention that tenancy law reforms have caused landlords to disinvest.”
Instead, they are fuelling this housing crisis which disempowers renters and favours investors. Achieving real balance means a refocus on fairer conditions for the 30% of West Australian's who rent.
