  3. Navigating a changing private rental sector: opportunities and challenges for low-income renters

    Author(s): Sharon Parkinson; Amity James; Edgar Liu

    Description: This study investigated how low-income renters navigate the private rental sector (PRS) via three core pathways: the formal (via traditional or mainstream real estate agent intermediaries), informal (direct to rooms and dwellings privately managed by landlords and sub-landlords) and supported pathways (via community housing agencies). It provides practitioners and policy makers with an evidence base on changing practices and ways forward in shaping equitable PRS institutions.

  6. Housing assistance need and provision in Australia: a household-based policy analysis

    Author(s): Wendy Stone; Sharon Parkinson; Andrea Sharam; Liss Ralston
