The Tasmanian Government has promised to act on Labor concerns about evictions because of the coronavirus.
Labor leader Rebecca White said the government must legislate against evictions to prevent more Tasmanians from becoming homeless or losing their business.
"We need to work now to ensure private and commercial tenants who have lost their incomes due to COVID-19 do not face eviction," Ms White said.
"Legislating to prevent evictions is something that should be implemented urgently."
Building and Construction Minister Elise Archer said there was "no doubt" the pandemic was causing concern for tenants and uncertainty for property owners.
"As a result of the impact of the spread of coronavirus, there are very real concerns about rental inspections, evictions, repairs for rental properties and breaking of leases," Ms Archer said.
"The Government will shortly issue fact-sheets about these important tenancy matters encouraging landlords, agents and tenants to work cooperatively on these matters."
Ms Archer said landlords and agents needed to "strongly reconsider the need for inspections, and if absolutely necessary, just one person should undertake the inspection and they should follow stringent Public Health advice so as not to place themselves or tenants at risk".
"We are currently considering whether any emergency legislative provisions are required," she said.
Tenants and landlords with questions can contact Consumer, Building and Occupational Services on www.cbos.tas.gov.au or 1300 654 499.
Ms White joined Premier Peter Gutwein in urging Tasmanians to adhere to self-isolation measuresThe Premier must act to legislate against evictions to prevent more Tasmanians from becoming homeless or losing their business.
Labor Leader, Rebecca White, said the new rules should apply to both the private and commercial markets.
"These are uncertain times and I want to stress the importance of staying at home if you can, especially if you are older or have an underlying illness," she said.
"It is important we all act as a community to do the right thing so we can save lives."
