Michelle Dickens from the Tenant Profile Network tells us how the Rental Housing Amendment Bill benefits tenants. Tenants will benefit from the written lease agreements in terms of understanding their rights and obligations. Both the tenant and landlord will be protected by having a written lease agreement, should a dispute arise. Property maintenance will be regulated and landlords will have to make sure the property is fit the purpose it was let.
