Sue Harrison and Geordie Rogers: Property Investors Federation President and Renters United President on ACT's new housing policy
Manage episode 378174788 series 2098282
The Property Investors Federation welcomes ACT's proposed housing policy changes- but tenant advocacy groups are sceptical.
The plan includes reinstating mortgage interest deductibility, abolishing the bright-line test and allowing no fault evictions.
Federation President Sue Harrison says these changes will make it easier for landlords and tenants alike.
"No one wants to evict good tenants, no one wants to get rid of their best people in their homes- but we need tools in our toolbox if we're to take on risky tenants."
Renters United President Geordie Rogers says there are rules in place that allow landlords to remove unruly renters.
"The return of no-cause evictions is really just a matter of hiding the reasons, because people are scared to say them out loud- or they don't fit a list."
