On Thursday 30 July 2015, the Residential Tenancies (Domestic Violence Protections) Amendment Bill 2015 was introduced into Parliament.
This is the latest Government initiative to address domestic violence since the Premier released Taking a Stand – Responding to Domestic Violence last year.
The intent is to provide further protections to victims of domestic violence in the tenancy sector.
There are a number of amendments proposed in the Bill. An information paper has been prepared by Consumer and Business Services and can be found by following this link.
