Last night both houses of Parliament backed an amendment from the Greens to reinstate the moratorium on evictions and rent increases, as part of the Covid-19 emergency response bill.
“This is a huge win for renters who are struggling during this pandemic,” said the Greens’ Housing Spokesperson Robert Simms MLC.
“I’m pleased the House of Assembly supported the Greens and the majority of the Legislative Council in reinstating these vital protections for renters until the end of the year - ensuring that we don’t have people evicted into homelessness.”
The Greens have successfully extended these provisions twice since May.
