Legislation Outlook

"It is true that the market has changed substantially since 1985, and some legislative updates are necessary, particularly to address ambiguous language in older laws. But future legislation should rest on three principles:

  1. PRS housing is the tenants’ home.
  2. PRS is a business for landlords, crucial for their livelihood.
  3. Legislation must be fair, proportionate, and explicit."
