Share House Living - Applying for Properties
Many landlords/agents require a great deal of personal information. You can choose not to disclose requested information but you may be put at a disadvantage.
Discrimination based on age, race, religion, parental status, sexual orientation, gender, disability or irrelevant criminal record is against the law.
Landlord/agents do not have to give reasons for rejecting an application so it may be difficult to prove discrimination but if you think you have been discriminated against contact the Anti-Discrimination Commissioner (1300 305 062).
If your application is successful then you have the choice of whether to accept or decline the property. Note that people under the age of 18 may enter into lease agreements.
