Caravan park (moveable dwelling) fact sheets

Rental law changes around ending tenancies, renting with pets and the introduction of repair orders commenced on 1 October 2022.

These fact sheets have been prepared specifically for owners/managers and tenants of moveable dwellings in Queensland: caravans, caravan sites and mobile homes. These types of accommodation are covered by the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (the Act).

The RTA has also produced a range of fact sheets for tenants/residents and property managers/owners or providers living in or managing houses, units, flats and rooming accommodation. These are available on the General tenancy fact sheets and Rooming accommodation fact sheets pages.

The RTA and Caravanning Qld also have a joint webinar with tenancy information for Park Managers.
