The Act outlines the rights and responsibilities of tenants, property managers/agents, property owners/landlords and caravan park managers involved in residential renting in Queensland. It sets out what the parties to a tenancy agreement can and cannot do, how to address issues that may arise during a tenancy and explains what measures can be taken if one of the parties to a tenancy breaches the provisions of the law.
The Act also outlines the rights and responsibilities of residents, providers and agents in rooming style accommodation such as boarding houses, supported accommodation, off-campus student accommodation, licensed premises and employer-provided accommodation. Rooming accommodation is generally where accommodation is provided in return for rent of one or more rooms and residents share facilities outside of the room (e.g. bathrooms).
