Housing—rental (Question No 1841)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 21 September 2018:

(1) What was the total number of residential rental properties in the ACT during each financial year from 2015-16 to date broken down by (a) unit and (b) house.

(2) What was the total number during each financial year from 2015-16 to date, of individuals, investors, or entities that owned (a) one residential rental property, (b) two residential rental properties, (c) three residential rental properties, (d) four residential rental properties, (e) five or more residential rental properties.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Since the abolition of land tax on commercial properties in 2012-13, the Revenue Office has not collected information related to the rental status of commercial properties. The number of residential properties for which land tax is paid is set out below.

2015-16 2016-17 2017-18 2018-19 Residential Units 25,888 26,520 27,860 25,662 Residential Houses 19,383 19,708 19,141 18,394

(2) I have been advised by ACT Revenue Office that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information for the purpose of answering the question would require a considerable diversion of resources.

Business—commercial rental (Question No 1842)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 21 September 2018:

(1) What was the total number of commercial rental properties in the ACT during each financial year from 2015-16 to date.

(2) What was the total number of individuals, investors, or entities during each financial year from 2015-16 to date that owned (a) one commercial rental property, (b) two commercial rental properties, (c) three commercial rental properties, (d) four commercial rental properties and (e) five or more commercial rental properties.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Refer to QoN 1348 of 11 May 2018 - breakdown of land tax payers by (a) suburb and (b) type of dwelling, such as houses, unit or commercial properties. It includes commercial properties to 2011-12 (land tax for commercial properties was abolished from 2012-13) otherwise the ACT Revenue Office does not record that data.
