CBD Renters Rights Information Night

Wednesday 10th March at Flagstaff Gardens 5:30pm – 7:00pm

Come and meet your neighbours and fellow renters! These info nights are a chance to catch up with renters in our neighbourhood and workshop ideas together about what our rights are, and how we can fight back.

Have you had to deal with your agent or landlord:

  • asking for exorbitant tenant transfer fees
  • not using qualified trades to carry out repairs
  • threatening you with eviction
  • not giving back your bond
  • asking for excessive personal information
  • showing up unannounced
  • issuing unreasonable rent increases

We’ll be workshopping common issues together, and discussing how we can better stand up for our rights. We’ll also have RAHU pamphlets with information on a variety of issues faced by us as renters for you to take home. The workshop is open to anyone, but we especially welcome people who are based in the CBD & Inner Suburbs.

This event will be held at Flagstaff Gardens and snacks will be provided. Be sure to bring a jacket in case it gets chilly. In the event of terrible weather, this event will be updated to an alternative venue indoors.

This event takes place on unceded lands of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to Boon Wurrung elders and ancestors past and present, and acknowledge that while this land was stolen, their sovereignty was never ceded.
