It’s been over 10 years since the State Government reviewed the Residential Tenancies Act and in the coming months they’ll be releasing a discussion paper for feedback on some significant proposed reforms including:

  • Security of tenure for tenants
  • Removal of “no grounds” terminations 
  • Disclosure of important information before a tenancy begins
  • Minimum standards of rental properties and maintenance and repairs
  • Tenant responsibility for wilful damage
  • Bonds, rental increases and other charges
  • Making a rental property a home, including the right to keep pets and make minor modifications 
  • Regulation of boarders and lodgers and room-by-room rentals
  • Changes to the dispute resolution process

If you’re a landlord and want to stay up to date with the discussion paper and proposed changes and more importantly have your say you can register for bulletins here.
