"I'm at my wits end as to what to do... It has caused me a lot of anxiety. I’m not sleeping, and even having trouble having conversations with people because I just don’t know how far it's going to go."
Nicole's story
"When I spoke to the agent about the repairs, she said she'd talk to the owner. Instead I got an eviction notice."

"As full time working parents 90 days does not seem long – we'd need to pack, potentially find new daycare/schools, make applications for properties, take time off for viewings."

"I got the 90 day eviction notice right before Christmas and my daughter's birthday."

Mark's story
"When I got the last rental increase, I replied that I would only pay it if the termite damage was fixed. The property manager's reply? Eviction notice."

Kristy's story
"I had been renting a property for almost 12 months. I had made a complaint about a water tank leaking and nothing was done about it. Being a single mum of 3 I couldn't afford buying water every 9-14 days, so I took the matter further to the Tribunal. Next thing I knew I had been given an eviction notice with no reason given."
