Real estate agent training 2.2

Number

2.2

Term

Short

Our Commitment

We will explore training and awareness-raising activities for real estate agents about domestic and family violence.

What have we achieved

While significantly affected by COVID-19 restrictions, the State Government continues to make progress on this important issue. The Renting with Pets campaign will soon be relaunched through social media following consultations. Work is underway to better inform real estate agents when making decisions regarding women and families with pets. The State Government has not progressed with Pet Bonds at this time.

What is next

The State Government will include Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence awareness training as requirements for new real estate agents, and continue to work with the Real Estate Institute of SA and the sector on further improvements. Pet Bonds may also be reconsidered in particular cohort-specific policy areas.

What difference will we make

Housing is primary to the safety, security and independence and women and families facing violence. The State Government will continue to work will all sectors to improve understanding and awareness of these important issues.
