We've delivered on the first stage of our commitment to make the rental system fairer for war renters. 

Our new laws to ban rent bidding are now in effect, meaning landlords and agents can no longer ask prospective tenants to offer more than the advertised rent to secure a home. 

This is just one part of our reforms to do what's right for WA and making renting fairer for everyone.

Information about the WA rent reforms is available on Consumer Protection's here.
