RTA and BCCM Webinar: Rental law changes – minimum housing standards and body corporates


From 1 May 2024, Queensland body corporate laws have changed including those relating to towing vehicles, pets, smoking and requirements to provide updated by-laws to tenants. Learn more at the Office of the Commission for Body Corporate and Community Management’s website.

The Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) has joined with the Office of the Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management (BCCM) to provide information on how minimum housing standards will apply to rental properties that are subject to body corporate by-laws.

Watch this 22-minute webinar to learn about:

  • minimum housing standards
  • how to comply with body corporate by-laws and minimum housing standards
  • who is responsible for repairs when a rental property is in a body corporate
  • common scenarios which may arise and who is responsible when repairs need to be made to a rental property in a body corporate.

Minimum housing standards come into effect for new tenancies from 1 September 2023, and for all tenancies from 1 September 2024.
