Launch of The National Nine – Principles for Strengthening Renters' Rights

Earlier this week the National Association of Renters’ Organisations (NARO) formally launched The National Nine – a briefing report providing expert guidance on the principles for strengthening renters’ rights in Australia.

At the webinar event Penny Carr, Convenor of NARO, provided an overview of the report’s key recommendations. This was followed by a panel conversation exploring the challenges facing renters and our rental housing system as we seek solutions and identify priorities for a national tenancy reform agenda.

Speakers included:

  • Trina Jones, NSW Rental Commissioner
  • Heather Holst, Victorian Rental Commissioner
  • Melisa Coveney, Darwin Community Legal Services
  • Daniel Pritchard, Circle Green Community Legal, Western Australia

Peter Mares, leading researcher and writer on the housing crisis, facilitated the conversation examining solutions.
