Description

The rental market in Australia appears to have become something like a war zone.

According to a new national study, co-authored by CHOICE, thousands of tenants are being discriminated against and live in a climate of fear.

The research, undertaken by CHOICE, the National Association of Tenants' Organisations and National Shelter, found that 83% of renters in Australia have no fixed-term lease or are on a lease less than 12 months long, and 62% feel they are not in a position to ask for longer term rental security.
