This article was last updated on 11 October 2022 to advise customers that some RTA forms were republished with minor edits on 6 and 11 October 2022, as listed in the table below.
The Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) has today published new and updated forms for general tenancies and rooming accommodation.
This follows amendments to the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (RTRA Act) after the Queensland Government’s Housing Legislation Amendment Act 2021 (HLA Act) became law in October 2021.
These updates ensure that all RTA forms align with the legislative amendments about ending a tenancy, renting with pets and the introduction of repair orders.
You can learn more about these changes on our rental law changes webpage.
A new RTA form – Request for approval to keep a pet in rental property (Form 21)* – is now available for tenants to formalise their request for approval to rent with a pet. A letter template has also been developed to help managing parties respond to pet approval requests so they can remain compliant with the new tenancy laws.
A list of updated RTA forms is below. Please ensure you download and use these latest versions.
