More protection for victims of domestic violence as new laws pass

19 November 2015

New laws that provide some of the strongest protections in the nation for victims of domestic violence who are renting their homes have passed State Parliament today.

A/Minister for Business Services and Consumers Susan Close said the amendments to the Residential Tenancies Act would help people living with abusive partners to break the shackles of rental agreements, so they can leave violent relationships.
