RTA Webinar: October 2022 rental law changes - Part 1 Ending tenancies

18 Aug 2022


Legislation to change the rent increase frequency to no more than once every 12 months came into effect on 1 July 2023. The information about rent increase frequency limits in this webinar is out of date, as it was published before the legislation changes came into effect.

Queensland tenancy laws are changing from 1 October 2022 and the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) is committed to guiding the sector through these important changes.

The first of the RTA’s new rental law changes webinar series about the new laws and processes associated with ending a residential tenancy was delivered on Friday 12 August.

In this 40-min webinar, the RTA provided details about:

  • the new grounds (reasons) available to property managers/owners and tenants for ending a tenancy from 1 October 2022
  • the process for ending fixed term and periodic tenancies
  • new penalties that apply for providing false and misleading information.

The RTA strongly encourages property managers, owners and tenants to watch this webinar and access other available resources to learn more about these changes.

You can also join us at a free tenancy information session to learn more.
