Disrupted: The consumer experience of renting in Australia
Disrupted – the second report commissioned by CHOICE, National Shelter, and The National Association of Tenant Organisations (NATO) – delves into the issues facing Australians who rent. It reveals three problems that people who rent are facing across the nation, with many: - living in poor quality homes afraid to request repairs; - on insecure tenancies; and - struggling with rental affordability and cost of living pressures. Renting in Australia is not a one-size-fits-all experience. The experience of families who rent with children is very different to that of women over 55 who rent their homes. This is again different from the experience of a 20-year-old entering the private rental market for the rst time. This report highlights the unique lived experiences of different demographics across Australia.
