The RTA is continuing to work with Queensland’s rental sector to ensure everyone has access to timely, accurate and impartial information, resources and education about changes to residential tenancy laws.
Minimum housing standards
Minimum housing standards aim to ensure all Queensland rental properties are safe, secure and functional.
Minimum housing standards came into effect for new tenancies from 1 September 2023, meaning if a tenancy agreement is signed or renewed from this date, the property must meet minimum housing standards. Minimum housing standards will come into effect for all remaining tenancies on 1 September 2024.
These new standards apply to all types of tenancies, including general tenancies, moveable dwellings, and rooming accommodation agreements.
