Statistics on the number of tenant evictions years 2011-2021

We're waiting for HtAG Analytics to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department of Social Services,

We are conducting research on the impact of covid-19 lock-downs on tenants Australia-wide.

Ideally we would need access to the following statistics (temporal range years 2011-2021):

1. Number of evictions per suburb per quarter
2. Property type for which the eviction occurred i.e. house, apartment, townhouse
3. Reason for eviction i.e. misconduct, financial hardship, other

The results will be published on https://www.htag.com.au to assist the real estate investor community in understanding which property markets are most susceptible to economic shock due to continued lock-downs.

Yours faithfully,

HtAG Analytics

NGUYEN, Luyen, Department of Social Services

Dear HtAG Analytics

 

I refer to your FOI request for data on eviction.

 

I am sorry to advise that the Department of Social Services does not have
data on eviction from properties. 

 

As housing is a state and territory responsibility, State Territory
housing authorities collect some data on public housing, and State and
Territory Housing Rental Bond housing boards collect some data on private
rental housing.

 

For example some data on termination of private rental housing can be
found in the link below.

FOI, Department of Social Services

Good afternoon,

 

I refer to your correspondence received by the Department of Social
Services (the Department) on 8 November 2021, in which you requested
access under the Commonwealth Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act)
to:

 

Number of evictions per suburb per quarter 2. Property type for which the
eviction occurred i.e. house, apartment, townhouse 3. Reason for eviction
i.e. misconduct, financial hardship, other

 

Decision due

The statutory period for processing your request is 30 days commencing
from the day after your request was received. If the due date falls on a
Saturday, Sunday, or public holiday, in accordance with the FOI guidelines
issued by the Australian Information Commissioner, the timeframe will
expire on the first day following which is none of those days.

 

In accordance with paragraph (b) of subsection 15(5) of the FOI Act, a
decision on your request is currently due on 9 December 2021.

 

When the processing period may be extended or suspended

 The current due date may be extended by up to 30 days if agreed by you
(section 15AA of the FOI Act). The due date may also be extended by an
additional 30 days in each instance, if your request is considered
voluminous or complex (section 15AB of the FOI Act) or if the Department
is required to undertake a third party consultation (sections 26A, 27 or
27A of the FOI Act). If any of these extensions apply, the Department will
notify you.  

Additionally, there are occasions where the time to process your request
may be suspended. This will usually take place if a practical refusal
consultation process takes place (section 24AB of the FOI Act) or if a
charges notice is issued to process your request (section 29 of the FOI
Act). If the Department decides that either of these apply to your
request, the Department will notify you.

The Department will correspond with you by email in relation to your FOI
request. 

 

Should you have any queries about this matter, please do not hesitate to
contact the FOI team via email at [1][Department of Social Services request email].

 

Yours sincerely,
