"People are already living with such fear and insecurity as a result of the current rental housing crisis - it's not just arrogant it's shockingly irresponsible for anyone to threaten mass evictions as Mr Triguboff has done."
"The fact that a threat like this could be legally carried out shows that billionaire developers like Triguboff have way too much power and control over people's homes, and by extension their lives.
"That's why I will be writing to parliamentary counsel to request they draft legislation to limit the control of greedy developers to hold people who rent and the government to ransom when it comes to protecting renters rights.
"With over a third of people in NSW living in rental homes, the government must reign in this investor driven housing insecurity."
"Triguboff's ability to cause a mass eviction crisis across his property portfolio shows exactly why any move toward build to rent has to be coupled with serious reform that gives renters more security."
"One of the richest people in Australia's is throwing a temper tantrum that will cause thousands of families to feel anxious about their housing security in the lead up to Christmas.
"Gladys Berejiklian needs to answer the question: will you let a billionaire property magnate dictate your housing policy?"
