RentConnect helps secure tenancies

By Staff Reporter

Cairns’ private rental market is becoming more accessible due to the Queensland government’s RentConnect initiative, which has helped 146 clients secure tenancies since April 2010.

Minister for housing and public works Dr Bruce Flegg said the program helped people get a foot in the door.

“Due to any number of non-financial barriers such as limited rental history, lack of understanding of how the private market works or lack of documentation, it can be really difficult for some people to secure a property,” Dr Flegg said. “RentConnect makes that initial transition a lot easier.”

There are 15 Housing Service Centres across Queensland, including Cairns, which have RentConnect officers who can provide direct assistance.

“RentConnect officers have developed great working relationships with local real estate agents across Queensland and this partnership is helping install pride back in clients as they find a place to call home,” Dr Flegg said.

RentConnect is funded by the Australian government and the Queensland Government through the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness.
