No country for young renters

Published on 01/12/2020

Young renters do it tough. Expensive rents, share houses, problems with flatmates, the risk of eviction, dodgy landlords, worry about bonds and outstanding repairs are just the tip of the iceberg.

Many young renters don’t believe they will ever be able to afford their own homes and will be renting for life.

While renters under the age of 25 make up a significant percentage of tenants in NSW (and are living in some of the worst conditions), our research has shown they do not contact Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services for free legal advice and support at the same rate as other age groups. We want to find out how we can do better and understand which issues matter most to you.

So if you’re a young renter, we would love to hear from you! Your input will help us improve the way the Tenants' Union NSW supports young people. Please fill out this short survey and keep and keep an eye on our socials for updates!
