Deadly tenants, deadly homes

Welcome to Deadly Tenants, Deadly Stories!

We created this page to showcase the deadly stories from and about our deadly tenants in regional and remote communities. We love storytelling and hope you do too, as we’d love to hear from you.

To hear more stories, read other articles and watch video content, don’t forget to ‘like’ our Deadly Tenants, Deadly Homes Facebook page.​
