This webinar will cover topics including:

Non-compliance with the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (the Act) is serious and penalties can include substantial fines and convictions.

In the past 12 months, the RTA has:

  • finalised over 1000 investigations
  • closed six court prosecutions with guilty pleas in all cases
  • issued more than 50 Penalty Infringement Notices, and
  • provided education and awareness to more than 400 people.

Find out how the RTA Investigations team actively engages with parties involved in an investigation to provide education and reduce the likelihood of repeated breaches and offences under the Act.
