Here is a well-thought out article on how our government is failing to recognise that providing rental accommodation is a business. By doing so, they fail to include landlords in business discussions/reforms, while also proposing legislation or initiating discussions that unfairly serve to label landlords as greedy or tax-evaders. Quote from article: "So largely the onus is on us as landlords to act in a business-like manner, promote being a landlord as an acceptable career choice, stand up against those who would vilify and abuse us, and portray ourselves and the businesses we run as fair, equal, and worthy participants in the ordinary commerce of the country." Well said. Read the full article here.
