This report on the Australian rental system comes from the mainstream Yahoo news, but their conclusion matches other sources such as Macrobusiness.com, that the Australian rental system is deeply flawed. A report by the online settlement platform Pexa and residential property business Longview, has concluded that “From short leases, frequent moving, rising rents, and no long-term security, a new report on Australia's housing crisis has revealed that Australia's current rental system is "broken."” Rental costs have exceeded wage increase for lower income earners, who are most affected anyway. And landlords face problems too, as it is more profitable to invest money in other areas than rental properties, which is one factor leading to less rental premises being available.
But, apparently, the herd of elephants in the room, mass migration pressure is not discussed, or at least, not reported by the mainstream. But at least they are admitting the obvious, that there is a rental crisis. So, we get to first base.
