Changes on the horizon for Queensland residential landlords

Print Version

4/10/2018

On 30 September, the State Government announced a new consultation process which is seeking comments from key stakeholders and the public to inform potential changes to the residential rental sector.

This comes off the back of a significant legislative change in Victoria last month, which includes allowing pets to be kept in rented premises, allowing renters to make minor changes to the property and changing requirements around bond payments, rent reviews and other key financial issues.

The consultation will run until 30 November 2018 – if you want to be involved, there is a survey which can be completed here.

Watch this space – it is likely that changes will follow in the coming year or two.

If you’d like some guidance or advice on the potential changes, or some assistance responding with feedback to the Queensland Government, please contact Amanda Tolson, Director.
