Submission on Residential Tenancy Databases – Model Provisions

Selina Claxton 2009, Housing, Research library, Submissions

The operation of residential tenancy databases over the last decade or so has been characterised by serious abuses of power and privacy with severe consequences for the most vulnerable members of the community. The risk that a tenant will face homelessness as the result of an adverse listing is high. This is an extremely serious consequence and the standard of protection that must therefore apply to tenants in any regulation of residential tenancy databases must be proportionately high.
