Weekly Rent Estimator

This tool will estimate the weekly amount of rent you may pay as a result of the rent calculation changes.

Your rent is based on your household’s assessable income. Before you begin, you will need information about your household’s current income such as Centrelink statements and payslips.

The estimated rent is based on the information you provide. The Department of Communities (Housing) determines your actual rent.

Changes to policy, the law, your circumstances and future events may mean that your actual rent may differ from the amount estimated.

It is important to only input weekly amounts into the tool. If you do not receive an income type, leave the box blank and proceed to the next page.

The information you provide is not stored. You will remain anonymous at all times.
