Minimum housing standards

Minimum housing standards aim to ensure all Queensland rental properties are safe, secure and functional.

These new standards came into effect for new tenancies from 1 September 2023, meaning if a tenancy agreement is signed or renewed from this date, the property must meet minimum housing standards. Minimum housing standards will come into effect for all remaining tenancies on 1 September 2024.

These new standards apply to all types of tenancies, including general tenancies, moveable dwellings, and rooming accommodation agreements.
