These resources are provided by Tenancy WA

New laws have been introduced to assist Western Australian tenants who are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 response.

The COVID-19 Act provides for a number of protections for tenants, including a moratorium on evictions, a ban on rent increases and extension of fixed-term leases, and how to create a rent repayment agreement. 

The COVID-19 Act only applies during the emergency period, which is 30 March 2020 to 29 September 2020.

Tenancy WA has created some resources to help tenants understand these changes. 

The best way to contact Tenancy WA is by phone on (08) 9221 0088 or 1800 621 888 for country callers.

Please leave a message with you name, and best contact details.  A member of the advice line team will retrieve your message and arrange for a staff member to return your call to arrange an appointment.

Further resources are available here.
