Rental law changes around ending tenancies, renting with pets and the introduction of repair orders commenced on 1 October 2022.
These forms were produced by the RTA to help providers and residents meet their obligations under the Act. In most instances, the Act specifies where an approved form must be used. The RTA strongly advises that, where possible, the approved form be used. However, if you cannot obtain a copy of a form when an approved form is needed, the Acts Interpretation Act 1954 allows for a person to use their own forms provided they are substantially the same as the approved form.
Tip: Download these forms as an Adobe PDF (download Adobe Reader for free) and save to your desktop or a folder before opening and editing the form. If you choose to edit this form in your web browser, please note that some web browsers won't save your information.
A resident completes the Notice ending residency interest (domestic and family violence) when they believe they can no longer safely occupy the premises due to domestic and family violence and wish to end their interest in their current residency and vacate the premises.
The Domestic and family violence report which must be completed and signed by an authorised professional can be provided as a type of relevant evidence to support that a tenant/resident is/has been experiencing domestic and family violence.
Tenants/residents and managing parties can use this form to request a rental bond refund for their bond contribution or a tenant/resident’s bond contribution once a tenant/resident’s interest in a tenancy/residency has ended on the grounds of experiencing domestic and family violence.
The Continuing interest notice has been developed to support property managers/owners, agents or managers/providers to fulfil their obligations under the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008.
The Change of property manager/owner (Form 5) is used to notify the RTA there has been a change of lessor, agent or manager/provider in an ongoing tenancy. It must be completed and signed by the previous and new lessor, agent or manager/provider.
The Notice to vacate from mortgagee to resident (Form R19) is used to inform the rooming accommodation resident/s that the mortgagee (or appointed person) will be taking possession of the premises and ending the rooming accommodation agreement.
A lessor/agent can use this letter template to respond to a tenant's request to keep a pet, and to ensure their response contains the required information and is compliant with legislative requirements.
Use this form to register your bank account details with the RTA if these have not already been provided on a Refund of rental bond (Form 4) which needs to be completed and submitted to the RTA to commence the refund process.
