NTG Removing Landlords Rights

This petition had 8,382 supporters


On Tuesday 18 February 2020, the Northern Territory Government passed the RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES LEGISLATION AMENDMENT BILL but did not pay heed to the advice of your own Legislation Scrutiny Committee in rejecting amendments to Section 65 of the Act.   Instead your Government chose to ignore the findings of the Committee and stakeholders and push through Sections 65A and 65B.

We call on the Gunner Government to honour the recommendations of the Legislation Scrutiny Committee and to immediately repeal Sections 65A and 65B from the Residential Tenancies Act and revert to the former wording.

Your actions in pushing through this legislation are not, as you would promote, about pet ownership - they are about stripping control from landlords over their own properties.  That is wholly unacceptable.

This petition is signed by a broad church of concerned Northern Territory citizens.  Citizens who are very concerned about how their rights and freedoms are being eroded by laws, introduced on ideological grounds.

We demand you start behaving in a manner that benefits the people of the Northern Territory and repeal these nonsensical Sections of the Act without delay.
