From Saturday 1 July 2023, Queensland’s rental laws limit the frequency of rent increases to once a year for all new and existing tenancies.
On Wednesday 12 July 2023, the Queensland Government opened consultation for a discussion paper about a potential reform to attach the rent increase frequency to the property rather than individual tenancies, with the aim to effectively stabilise rents in the private rental sector.
This consultation closed on Friday 11 August 2023.

The Queensland Government sought feedback from Queenslanders about this potential reform and other options or approaches the Government could consider taking to achieve the objective of stabilising rents in the private rental sector.
