Future renting WA Negotiating guide
It’s time to start talking about your renting future.
In response to COVID-19, the Western Australian Government implemented a moratorium on some evictions and all rent increases, under the Residential Tenancies (COVID-19 Response) Act 2020. The extended emergency period ends on 28 March 2021, which means that all the existing laws will stay in place until this date, after which the ordinary tenancy laws will apply again.
This guide has been developed to help landlords and tenants start a conversation about their tenancy arrangements after the end of the emergency period.
Consumer Protection is encouraging landlords and tenants to talk about their options, as by negotiating now they will be better prepared and have time to make plans for a safe and secure renting future.
