RTA Webinar: Deep dive into legislative amendments

16 Feb 2022

1. Rental law changes relating to ending tenancies, renting with pets and the introduction of repair orders commenced as of 1 October 2022. Learn more.

2. Minimum housing standards came into effect for new tenancies (including renewed tenancy agreements) from 1 September 2023. They will come into effect for all remaining tenancies on 1 September 2024. Learn more.

This webinar was recorded prior to the rental law changes coming into effect, and some information may be out of date.

In this 50 minute webinar, the RTA covers the following topics to help property managers/owners and tenants navigate the new amendments:

  • implementation timelines
  • domestic and family violence provisions
  • minimum housing standards
  • other additional amendments you need to know
  • pets and new grounds to end a tenancy
  • RTA update – what’s new

We also respond to questions from our webinar audience. It is important to understand what changes are in effect now, and what is around the corner to start once a proclamation date is announced. This will impact general tenancies and rooming accommodation.
