The Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) has updated the two Pocket Guides for Tenants and tenancy agreements for general tenancies, rooming accommodation, and movable dwellings.
This follows amendments to the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (RTRA Act) to limit the frequency of rent increases to once every 12 months, which come into effect for all new and existing tenancies from 1 July 2023.
You can learn more about these changes and access a range of helpful resources including FAQs, webinars and podcasts on our rental increase frequency changes webpage.
