Everyone deserves to live in a place where they can create a home – whether they rent or own. Queenslanders are invited to provide feedback on major renting policy reform, with Stage 1 of reforms paying detailed attention to minimum housing standards, minor modifications to the property, tenancies with domestic and family violence, and keeping pets. Have your say on the suite of proposed reforms on the Housing and Public Works website. Public submissions close 5pm, 28th December. Tenants Queensland will be hosting a tenancy law forum to discuss the proposed changes on Tuesday, 10th December at the Souths Leagues Club, West End 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Panellists include Dr Chris Martin, the Senior Research Fellow for UNSW’s City Futures Research Centre, Acting Chief Operations Officer for Brisbane Housing Company, Stacey Holt, Director of Real Estate Academy of Excellence, as well as Penny Carr, the CEO of Tenants Queensland. Tickets are $25 for sector workers and free for tenants.
