Safety and sustainability of rental property
|Subtitle||Work on minimum safety and housing standards and sustainable energy subsidies in NSW|
With a view to making a recommendation to the Minister for Fair Trading, Tenants NSW placed the issue of child-safe windows on the agenda of the Property Services Advisory Council, including options for law reform.
We expressed support for the recommendations of the Children's Hospital at Westmead in relation to children falling from residential buildings and maintain contact with the expert advisory group from the hospital.
We had continued discussion with relevant groups about the introduction of minimum safety standards for rental properties including mandatory installation of electrical safety switches and locks on high windows.
On the availability of sustainable energy subsidies to tenants, we started liaison with the trade union United Voice.
