Change the law to prevent unfair evictions, so that people who rent can create stable homes in their neighbourhoods.

Renters deserve the security of knowing that they cannot be unfairly evicted from their home.

Canberra needs fairer renting laws. 

But for too many people, the housing pressures they face are getting worse, not better. Canberra is facing a housing crisis, where stable, affordable and safe homes are out of reach for everyday people. 

Our campaign is calling for the ACT Government to change the laws to improve rights for tenants, so that they have fair protections against evictions, a right for their home to be safe and comfortable, and new laws to prevent unfair and excessive rental increases.

What We Are Campaigning For

Stable, safe and affordable homes for all


Fair limits on rental increases, so that landlords cannot increase rents unfairly or in retaliation.

Affordable rental homes means more equal, stronger and more inclusive communities.


Requirements for landlords to meet minimum standards for rental houses so that your home won't make you sick, or cause an injury.

No one should have to live in an unsafe house that puts their health at risk.

I've faced unfair rental increases in every home I've rented. It's time there was a cap on increases.
