The Landlord Advisory Service has called upon ACT landlords to speak up for their rights at the a public meeting being held by the ACT Community Law Reform Committee.

The meeting is at Phillip College from 4pm to 7pm next Monday.

The service has placed an advertisement in The Canberra Times tomorrow saying landlord rights to chose a tenant, to be paid rent and to retain vacant possession of their properties are under threat.

It says tenant groups have many ideas for change.

The director of the service, Peter Jansen, is concerned that significant changes to tenancy law in favour of tenants could be allowed to pass through lack of awareness by landlords. He said both tenants and landlords should be more aware of the law and that any changes to the law needed to be balanced.
