The experience of marginal rental housing in Australia
This is the Final Report of a research project on contemporary marginal rental housing in Australia. The study aimed to: understand the defining characteristics of marginal rental housing and create a marginal rental housing typology; understand the experiences of residents, service providers and managers; and draw out the findings and implications for policy-makers.An earlier Positioning Paper (Goodman et al. 2012) reviewed the recent literature and research on marginal rental housing and marginal renters in Australia and internationally. This Final Report presents the findings of qualitative research undertaken through focus groups and interviews with marginal renters in case study sites and associated housing, health, legal and advocacy service providers, operators and government staff which informed the resulting typology and our policy recommendations.
