Housing and tenancy

Community Legal Centres Queensland believes that security of housing, as well as being a human right in itself, is fundamental to the achievement of many other basic entitlements. Enjoyment of tenancy rights is central to the security of housing for disadvantaged Queenslanders.

Community Legal Centres Queensland supports Article 25 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and Article 11(1) of the International Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. 

Community Legal Centres Queensland advocates

  • a legislative right to housing;
  • due process in housing and tenancy decisions, regardless of the form of accommodation;
  • political and financial support for social housing;
  • the availability of review processes for all social housing tenants;
  • full and recognised tenancy rights for people in social housing;
  • state regulation of minimum housing standards; 
  • affordable and accessible housing targets in all new developments; and
  • interest on tenants’ bonds should be used for advocacy of tenancy rights
