    A lobby group says changes to the Tenancy act are great news for renters - it need some tweaking

    A lobby group says changes to the Tenancy act are great news for renters - it need some tweaking


    The Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill passed its first reading at Parliament yesterday and is progressing to the select committee stage.

    The proposed changes include banning no-cause evictions and limiting rent increases to just one per year.

    Renters United organiser, Robert Whittaker, says there are still some wording loopholes that could be exploited.

    For example, if a tenant is moves out because of renovations and these don't go ahead, the tenant may have been moved out unfairly.
