Companies spy a way to exploit tenants

The use of tenancy databases creates an unnecessary intrusion into the private lives of renters. Such gross violations of privacy highlight the weak state of tenancy rights in Australia.

Suspend disbelief for a moment and imagine you are a residential landlord with a property for rent, seeking prospective tenants through a property manager. After advertising, it later comes to your attention that many potential tenants have assessed your suitability as a landlord and that of your property manager, via online databases that record wide-ranging personal information.
