    Drawing a gun may be excessive but police doing the job of evicting and doing so fairly promptly after rent payments stop makes sense.

    In normal times it is attractive but as I mentioned earlier during the Great Depression when a massive amount of workers lost their jobs families were bundled out on the streets and there may not be new tenants to replace them. At a guess maybe that was when public housing became a priority. So the prevention is a planned economy that the USSR had, there was no Depression. The Depression led many workers to socialism.

    Police can only evict within 14 days of receiving a possession warrant. It is up to the landlord to purchase the warrant when authorised by the administrative tribunal. Before a tribunal hearing the landlord must issue a notice to leave to the tenant and the tenant does not comply. The tenant may also appeal against the notice.

    The delays involved are nothing to do with the police.

    I had one mob not turning up for court and disappear on the day. So I put all their stuff on the street and installed chains and locks. That solved that problem. Someone was behind on rent and didn't want to pay so I took her new unused TV and told her off. She never came back but great TV. She was a gamblaholic. She did offer personal services payment. She was ex-wife of famous Australian personality.

    Yes. But the delays are there. The whole process is painfully slow.

    And after eviction - hard to get money back even if court case is won. This is why, while I understand people who complain that ''nobody wants to rent to them because of the past'' - I also understand those who do not want such tenants.

    Re tenancy issues and homelessness: Some people have been claiming that they can afford to pay rent but nobody wants to rent to them. One solution could be - government agencies acting as guarantors for such tenants. I would still be reluctant to rent to those who are supported by ''guarantors'' rather than own track-record of rentals, but would i have no other tenants lining up - i would certainly consider. Another option that comes to mind, rather than having free ''crisis acommodation'' - setting up llow cost rental accommodation where tennants pay - that would be more affordable. I am referring to short term accomodation rather than Housing Commission apartments.
