The Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) is continuing to provide the Queensland residential rental sector with information and support on RTA services and tenancy matters.
Our first interactive webinar of 2022 was hosted on Thursday 10 February, providing a detailed look at changes to the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 as announced by the Queensland Government in October 2021. Over 130 people attended this webinar with many submitting questions and providing feedback on future topics of interest. The webinar was recorded and is now available along with the other webinars on our website. Further webinars on rental law reforms will be scheduled as additional details are announced.
The next webinar scheduled for Thursday 10 March at 10am will focus on practical tips for resolving and managing common situations that can occur in a tenancy. Please register to join us and we look forward to seeing you then.
We are also offering free online tenancy information sessions to property managers and owners in the Ipswich and Redlands areas in March 2022. Experienced RTA staff will provide tailored information to help manage tenancies and respond to questions about tenancy rights and responsibilities. Topics will include:
- current Queensland tenancy laws and upcoming changes
- tips for self-resolution and resolving disputes
- RTA’s investigations and compliance function.
For further details about these online sessions and to register, please visit the RTA events page. In-person information sessions are also in the pipeline for Rockhampton, Bundaberg, the Fraser Coast and the Gold Coast from June to October 2022.
The RTA’s Talking Tenancies podcast releases a new episode every fortnight. Our latest episode provides helpful tips when calling the RTA and shares how you can be prepared to help us help you. Other recent episodes discuss moveable dwellings used for residential purposes, the different types of tenancy agreements and practical tips for students who are renting. Each episode is 10-15 minutes in length, presenting convenient tenancy information on-the-go.
