A tenant named on the tenancy agreement can only be listed after the tenancy has ended in one of the following circumstances:
Tenants may be listed where the tenancy has ended and the amount owing exceeds the rental bond, and:
- the money owed under a conciliation agreement or QCAT order is not paid on time, or
- they have been served with a Notice to remedy breach (Form 11) for rent arrears and have failed to remedy the breach, or
- after abandonment of the property, unless the dispute is currently subject to a QCAT determination.
If no rental bond has been paid, a tenant cannot be listed unless the amount owing is more than 1 week’s rent.
A tenant can be listed for objectionable behaviour where QCAT has terminated the tenancy agreement for that reason.
A tenant can be listed for repeated breaches where the Tribunal has terminated the tenancy agreement for that reason.
Domestic and family violence
QCAT can make an order that a person must not be listed on a tenancy database where the breach is a result of the actions of a perpetrator's violence. The perpetrator can be listed on the database.
