Tasmania signposts rental support

The Tasmanian government continues to provide support to landlords and tenants affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following the extension of the eviction moratorium in November, Tasmania’s Minister for Building and Construction Elisa Archer said that the local government had delivered more than $2.2 million dollars in support for landlords and tenants as of 11 December 2020.

According to her, nearly 3,000 tenants and landlords have applied under the COVID-19 Rent Relief Fund and the COVID-19 Landlord Support Fund during the emergency period, and of these applications, 2,309 tenants and landlords have received assistance through these funds.

Further, 55 tenants have been approved to receive payment and 219 applications by tenants and landlords are currently under immediate assessment.

Overall, the government’s support packages have now removed more than 75 per cent of rent arrears from the residential tenancy market, Ms Archer said.

She commented: “These support packages are the most generous in Australia, offering up to $10,000 per residential dwelling for eligible tenants and landlords.”

“We recognise the daily challenges faced by Tasmanians during this time of financial hardship, and we continue to provide the necessary support as Tasmania recovers and rebuilds from COVID-19,” Ms Archer concluded.

Tasmania’s COVID-19 support packages remain available to landlords and tenants until 31 January 2021.
