Nobody should be without a home. It doesn’t matter whether you’re renting or buying, everybody deserves a decent and stable place to live.
But decades of bad Liberal and Labor governments have created a housing system that only works best for their big donors: the big banks and property developers.
The Greens will ensure we have a housing system that puts community need before property developer greed. We’ll invest in a vibrant social and community housing sector, give renters the dignity of an affordable and stable home and we’ll make it easier for you to buy your first home than for an investor to buy their fifth.
The Greens’ plan for housing will make sure everyone has a place to call home, no matter your bank balance or postcode.
More houses for those who need them
Building affordable, rent-controlled, well designed public and community homes.
A better deal for renters
Give renters real rights, including long-term leases, a home for your pet, no more unfair rent increases, and provide $30 million in legal aid for renters to defend their rights.
Helping you buy your first home
Get rid of unfair tax rules that benefit wealthy investors and hurt first home buyers, including ending the negative gearing and capital gains tax discount rorts, and replace stamp duty with land tax.
Increase funding for temporary accommodation services so that no one is left without a bed.
