Property becomes unliveable

Need emergency housing assistance? Help is available from the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services or Department of Housing, Local Government, Planning and Public Works​​.

A property becomes unliveable when it:

  • is fully, or partially, destroyed (e.g. due to a natural disaster)
  • can no longer be used lawfully as a residence (e.g. building is condemned) – contact the relevant authority (e.g. local council) for more information.

The unliveability of a property must be considered on a case-by-case basis.
