Extend the eviction moratorium

  • Decorative

The Queensland Government announced it will end the eviction moratorium for residential tenants on 30 September 2020.

The community service sector is on the frontline responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. We assist vulnerable Queenslanders every day, and we know that not extending the eviction moratorium for renters is dangerous.

We are urging the Queensland Government to extend the moratorium until at least 31 December 2020 to protect housing security and provide certainty for industry and the economy.

QCOSS has prepared three quick actions you can take to call for an extension to the moratorium:

  • Send an email on behalf of your organisation. We’ve created a quick and simple form for you to send to the Queensland Premier and Housing Minister – it should only take 90 seconds to complete.
  • Send an individual email using this simple form.
  • Sign our open letter – QCOSS and Tenants Queensland are coordinating an open letter from a broad cross-section of Queensland organisations. To register as a signatory please fill in this form by Wednesday 23 September.
