Tasmania’s rental crisis continues to worsen


The 2023 Rental Affordability Index shows Tasmania is in a deepening rental crisis, the Greens say.

“This is the system acting exactly as planned by the Labor Government,” Greens Senator for Tasmania Nick McKim said.

"Billions are given to property investors, while renters are abandoned and public and affordable housing is grossly and deliberately underfunded.”

"Both Labor and Liberal parties have failed to safeguard housing as a fundamental right, and treated it as an asset class for the already wealthy.”

"We need rent control to protect Tasmanians from the rampant rental market.”

"We need urgent and immediate action to introduce rent control measures and invest in public housing.”

"Every Tasmanian deserves a safe, affordable place to call home."
