Consumer protection hotline


The Department of Consumer Protection says any tenant in Department of Housing accommodation who hasn't been able to resolve maintenance issue with DoH to call their hotline on 1300 30 40 54. 

Department of Consumer Protection Executive Director Anne Driscoll told Paul Murray today that the Department of Housing, like any private landlord, has a responsibility to maintain their rental properties to a safe and healthy standard.

Any tenant of a Department of Housing dwelling who has a problem with maintenance that has not been dealt with and now presents a health or safety risk is encouraged to call the Department of Consumer Protection on 1300 30 40 54.


The Department of Consumer Protection suggests that Homeswest tenants should first try to resolve their issue with Homeswest, who have a dispute resolution process in place, and only contact them if the matter remains unresolved and they have exhausted HW avenues.
