Tasmanian Rents

FREE Rent Statistics made for Tenants by the Tenants' Union.

Welcome to the latest issue of Tasmanian Rents.Tas Rents March Cover

Every quarter the Tenants’ Union publishes rent statistics compiled from online Bond Lodgement data collected by the Rental Deposit Authority. The data is based on information provided by both the landlord and tenant when lodging a bond with the Rental Deposit Authority.

This issue includes statistics from the third quarter of 2019. We compare the weighted median rents of Tasmania’s three geographical regions, which are rents that comprise all property sizes, with their equivalents from the previous quarter and the same quarter of the previous year.  In more detailed overviews, you will find median rents for different property sizes (1 bedroom, 2 bedroom etc) in particular regional areas and their change since the previous financial year.
