Reports in the Age, the Herald Sun and the AFR about tenants being protected from eviction

March 26, 2020


The Age has published an article confirming that state governments are working on measures to protect home renters and small business owners whose businesses are closed by measures to combat the spread of Covid-19 here:

The article says that:

The measures would prevent landlords evicting tenants from both residential and commercial leases if those tenants can point to the coronavirus crisis as the cause of their financial stress.

The article also says that:

Commercial landlords will be helped in return for accepting the halt to evictions for vulnerable customers, but the nature of that help is still being negotiated.

The Herald Sun and the Australian Financial Review have reported that the Federal Government is reportedly considering income tax cuts for landlords who reduce the rental amount that tenants must pay.
