Darwin Community Legal Service’s Tenants’ Advice Service (TAS) is collecting signatures in support if their Northern Territory Residential Tenancies Act reform campaign.
The campaign seeks to make renting fair, safe and certain for residential tenants through:
- Establishing a Bond Board (as in all other Australian jurisdictions) that will facilitate Bond (security deposit) returns/retention
- Greater protections for survivors of Domestic and Family Violence e.g. to vacate a tenancy to escape violence
- Ensuring tenants are not forced out of a tenancy without a reason
