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.
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.
When a tenant ends their interest in their tenancy on the grounds of experiencing domestic and family violence and vacates the property, the vacating tenant or the managing party can lodge a bond refund using this form.
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.
