The Department for Housing has evicted more than 150 people in the past six months as part of a crackdown on tenant eligibility.
In 2009, the State Government announced a review of the eligibility criteria for state housing tenants, to ensure they did not exceed income cut offs.
A total of 153 people have been forced to leave since November last year,
The Housing Minister Troy Buswell says changes announced last month to crackdown on anti-social tenants are also likely to lead to more people being evicted.
"I expect there will be some evictions that we'll be criticised for making but ultimately we've given a commitment to attempt to put some balance into the relationship between a Homeswest tenant and the community in which they live so that those communities are better protected," he said.
The Housing Minister Troy Buswell says anti-social tenants are being targeted.
"I expect that the department will certainly be cracking down on problematic tenants with the changes to the three strikes policy," he said.
"How that manifests itself in evictions, time will tell but I expect there will be more evictions."
