My experience

"I'm 67 with health and mobility issues and cannot afford to retire.

I've had to move 4 times in the past 5 years due to rentals being sold. Each time costs over $1000 as I have disabilities that mean I cannot carry much in terms of weight.

The tenancy tribunal and Tenancy Services are of limited use as landlords can find out that you've used them and blacklist you. MSD Accommodation supplements are not enough to access rental properties and still be able to eat let alone participate in society.

Society is showing signs of cracks as people have no investment in their local communities as they have to move so often, they don't put down roots or care about their locality. Children have to move schools and sometimes get "lost" to the system"
