Welcome to Tenancy WA

Protecting the right to housing for all tenants through advocacy, advice and education

Tenancy WA helps people who rent their home to resolve their tenancy problems.

Our role is to advise, support and educate people so they are able to resolve any rental issues and better understand their rights and responsibilities as a tenant.

We are here to help you with your tenancy problem if you:

  • rent a private home;
  • live in public housing;
  • live in community housing;
  • rent a caravan or a unit in a residential park;
  • are boarding in a lodging house or a private home.

If you work in tenancy advice or community services anywhere in WA, we offer a range of support services especially designed to assist you to help your clients.

We also look for long term solutions for renters in WA by getting involved in law and policy reform.
