The Housing Minister, Minister Mander, says that tenant advice services duplicate the role of the government’s Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA). But did you know that in the last year of state government funding the services spent 24,000 hours representing the interests of individual Queensland tenants to their landlords, real estate agents or in the tenancy tribunal?
Hands on front line work delivered in local communities across the state. Something that the impartial, Brisbane CBD based RTA does not and cannot do! Does that sound like duplication to you?
Where will those Queenslanders go for help after December 31?
