Housing Legislation Package 2023
The REIQ welcomed the opportunity to provide our views on the Housing Legislation Package 2023 (the Housing Package) released by Treasury for community consultation on 19 December 2022, including the:
- Housing Australia Future Fund Bill 2023 (the HAFF Bill);
- National Housing Supply and Affordability Council Bill 2023 (the Housing Council Bill); and
- Treasury Laws Amendment (Housing Measures No. 1) Bill 2023 (the Amendment Bill).
The REIQ commended the Federal Government for expeditiously producing the Housing Package after announcing in its Federal Budget in October 2022, a number of measures designed to prioritise housing affordability in the national agenda and address the serious housing supply shortage afflicting communities across Australia.
In our submission below, we outlined various issues and factors which Treasury may wish to consider to ensure the success and effectiveness of the Housing Package.
