Rent Control - Adam Bandt

Melbourne Needs Rent Control

Take Action

Renters are getting screwed. The Greens have a plan to fix it. 

Anglicare Australia's recent analysis of 67,000 rental properties across Australia is staggering. 

Not one single property is affordable for a single person on Youth Allowance or Newstart in all of Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Darwin or Perth. 

We need to control rent prices. Add your voice to our petition today.

Why is this important?

Melbourne's housing is in crisis. 

A whole generation has been locked out of owning a home. Renters face insecurity, rising rents and a rigged system that treats them like second-class citizens. 

Last year, rents across Melbourne went up 4.2% -- over twice wages growth. We need to get rents under control. 

Rent control works. New York, Sweden and Germany are just some of the places where it helps keep rent affordable for low-income earners and young people.

It's time to get serious about fixing housing in Melbourne. It's time for rent control.
