Older Renters in the Western Australian Private Rental Sector: Strategies to enhance housing security for WA's older renters

This research draws on national legal, financial, planning and policy precedents, to explore interdisciplinary strategies to make housing more secure for older people in the private rental sector in metropolitan and regional WA.
