Assisting the authorities with their inquiries: part 2 - the TU's Housing Affordability Survey

At the Brown Couch, we're often hearing from tenants who are having a hard time. Primarily through our connection to the local Tenants' Advice & Advocacy Services, but also our presence on Facebook and Twitter, we have an excellent insight into the kinds of tenancy problems that the people of New South Wales run into - and, as much as is possible under our relevant laws, how they can be solved.



Less often, we hear from folks who are not having any specific trouble, but who have something general to say for the sake of promoting the interests of tenants, and improving our lot.

In fact, every tenant has something to contribute - to help us with our work, and to ensure our work remains relevant - just by telling us how you're getting on.

We kicked off the year by mentioning two separate government inquiries into housing affordability, and asking you to help inform our submissions by sharing your stories and experiences as a tenant in NSW.

Yesterday, we launched a short Housing Affordability Survey.

Your answers to these 20 quick questions will make sure our understanding of the impact of housing costs on tenants across New South Wales remains well and truly on the money. If you've not already done so, please take the survey, and share the link with your friends.

We're a bit overwhelmed with the response so far... A huge thank you to everyone who has already taken a look. But, you know - the more the merrier. Please make sure all your friends take the survey too!

Cheers.
