Residential Act report

THE State Government has released an independently commissioned report into home renting laws in WA.

Consumer and Employment Protection Minister John Kobelke said the statutory review included a public consultation process to recommend changes to the Residential Tenancies Act.

“This report is a follow up to a public discussion paper I released in February this year and we are on target to introduce amendments to the legislation during this term of Government,” he said.

The report makes recommendations on issues that include dispute resolution the rights and obligations of tenants and owners, the termination or residential agreements, and the obligation of agents’ letting fees.

The next stage of the process will involve public comment on the report ahead of any commitment by the Government, to the specific recommendations.

“I recognise there are differing views on some contentious issues contained in this independent report, but the Government is committed to achieving a balanced outcome,” Mr Kobelke said.

Barber in town

FORMER quiz show host Tony Barber has been employed to market the Beaumont retirement village located on the site of the old Swanbourne Hotel.

Mr Barber was recently in Perth to launch the advertising and marketing campaign for the development, now being managed by Primelife Corporation.

“I’ve been involved with Primelife since my mother moved to one of their facilities in Melbourne, that’s why I’m happy to lead the campaign in my home town,” Mr Barber said.

Primelife chief executive officer Ted Sent said Beaumont was in a prime location and that the company was keen to become part of the local community.
