“My house has holes in the wall and floor, and the roof leaks every time it rains. The bathwater is brown and there is mould in the roof. My landlord is also the property owner, and he takes no action when I ask him to fix the house. I can’t make a formal complaint because I worry I’ll be kicked out.
“I know plenty of people living on the street or sleeping in their cars because it’s just so hard to get a rental in this area. If you’re on the dole, it’s so hard to afford rent and food or petrol for your car. And once you’re on the street it’s nearly impossible to get back into a house.
“I’ve lived in this house for seven years. I don’t believe tenants have rights.” Nathan
