Better Renting on ABC Tasmania

On Thursday 19 March 2021, Better Renting Executive Director Joel Dignam spoke with ABC Tasmania to refute false arguments against rental reform.

Most property investors do not take rental law into account when making their investment decisions - they are much more concerned about the movements in the overall property market. As such, it's a lie to saw that tenancy law reform will cause landlords to sell their properties. Even if this does happen, it just makes it easier for someone else to become a home-owner: it doesn't reduce the overall supply of housing.
