Protection for Renters


THE ACT will be the first jurisdiction in Australia to remove all forms of tenancy termination without a cause.

The move will follow the introduction of the Territory Government’s “NO CAUSE EVICTIONS” legislation.

under current procedures, renters can be evicted without having breached their tenancy agreement, or without being provided any reason whatsoever as to why their tenancy is being ended.

But the “NO CAUSE EVICTIONS” bill is hoped to reverse the negative impact on Canberrans, renting in the A.C.T.

Some original requirements remain – that is, the legislation would still landlords to evict renters under reasonable actions, such as a property sale, or when the owner wants to move back in.
