RTA forms updated to reflect customer feedback

14 December 2022

The Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) has today published updated forms for general tenancies and rooming accommodation.

These form changes are based on customer and staff feedback and:

  • provide further clarity about the recent 1 October 2022 legislative changes around ending a tenancy, renting with pets and the introduction of repair orders
  • give updated information about the RTA’s interpreter services
  • include updates to the Bond lodgement (Form 2) to reflect planning regulation changes to allow property owners to rent secondary dwellings, such as granny flats, to non-family members.
