Notice periods for ending a tenancy

Update

The Queensland Government has made changes to some COVID-19 arrangements for residential tenancies, effective 1 May 2021 to 30 April 2022. Learn more.

Changes to approved reasons for ending a tenancy and the introduction of a framework for all parties to negotiate renting with pets will commence on 1 October 2022, as part of Stage 1 Rental law reforms.

There are rules and timeframes that must be followed when ending a tenancy. A tenant, property manager or property owner can all issue a notice ending a tenancy.

If the correct notice and form are not used, the other person may ask for compensation.

When serving notices by post, the sender must allow time for the mail to arrive when working out when a notice period ends.
