About us

The RTA is the Queensland Government statutory body that administers the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (the Act). The RTA is responsible to the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Planning and Minister for Public Works.

From July 2022, the Queensland Government is providing the RTA with a grant to fund our operations. Rather than being invested to earn interest, bond monies received from customers are now held in an operating bank account that is not subject to fluctuations in global financial markets.

We work with all sector groups including tenants, property managers and owners, community and industry stakeholder groups and the Queensland Government.

We provide tenancy information, bond management, dispute resolution, compliance and enforcement, and education services.
