RTA Webinar: Deep dive into legislative amendments to the RTRA Act

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.

In October 2021, the Queensland Parliament passed the Housing Legislation Amendment Bill 2021 which amended the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008. While the new tenancy legislation has been made law, it’s important to remember that not all changes commence immediately.   

The webinar we presented at the end of 2021 provided customers with an overview of these reforms. The Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) has now delved deeper into some of the amendments to discuss what these changes may mean for all involved. 

Watch our interactive webinar as we look at the details of the legislative amendments – those that are already in place now and those that are due to commence.  

Topics covered include: 

  • implementation timelines 
  • domestic and family violence provisions 
  • minimum housing standards 
  • other additional amendments you need to know 
  • pets and new grounds to end a tenancy 
  • RTA update – what’s new.
