A Choice* report has suggested that one in seven people fear eviction or rent hikes if they request repairs to the home they're renting and half of those surveyed have experienced discrimination when applying for a rental. These people have felt discrimination over their age, government payments they receive, disabilities, if they have young children or pets and single parents.

The survey was given to over 1,000 renters in Australia and suggests that 14% of renters don't ask for repairs because they are worried about being blacklisted on the tenancy database.

Have you ever experienced an issue renting? Let us know below (please don't name any person/businesses)!
