More than half of inner city dwellings are rented and my submission on the five year Residential Tenancies Act 2010 review argued that people in shared houses not covered by a lease need legal rights including access to the tribunal to get bond back. I called for an end to no-grounds evictions which are often used to evict a tenant as retribution for exercising their rights, and I supported requirements to give prospective tenants bylaws before they sign a lease. I also supported pet bonds to encourage more pet friendly apartments.
My submission is available HERE.
