Changes to Queensland rental laws came into effect on 20 October 2021. We’re working to update our website and resources as a priority and more information will be available soon. Learn about the changes.
The RTA has produced a range of fact sheets for tenants/residents and property managers/owners living in or managing houses, units, flats, caravans and moveable dwellings.
The owner/manager is responsible for paying all charges, levies, premiums, rates or taxes payable for the land that is the park. Examples include land taxes, general rates and environmental levies. This does not prohibit the charging of GST on rents to tenants.
Lessors must take reasonable steps to ensure tenants have quiet enjoyment of their rented home. This means the lessor/agent must not interfere with the tenant’s reasonable peace, comfort and privacy in using the premises.
A General tenancy agreement (Form 18a) is the agreement between a tenant and a lessor/agent which sets out the terms that apply to the tenant’s stay in general tenancies such as houses, units and townhouses.
