We Need Rights for Renters

The Greens' will make renting a safe, affordable, secure and long-term option for Queenslanders.

Rights for Renters

Over a third of Queenslanders now renting, more and more people locked out of the housing market, and our rental regulations don’t protect renters. Here in South Brisbane 60% of households are renters.

Our ‘Rights for Renters’ Plan aims to make renting a safe, affordable, secure and long-term option for Queenslanders.

Lease Security

We’ll introduce unlimited leases, ban no-grounds evictions, and extend the amount of notice landlords will need to give tenants if they want to move back into the property.

Rent Controls

We’ll limit rent increases to only once every 24 months, and rent increases will be linked to the consumer price index and wage growth.
