Changing Tenancy Legislation in QLD – Have your say!
As investment property managers Brisbane-wide, we have a strong interest in representing rental property owners in Queensland and are carefully following the current review of the RTRA Act.
The review of the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act (RTRA Act) began September 30, 2018 and runs until November 30, 2018. If you are a Landlord with investment properties in Queensland, we encourage you to get involved and have your say if you have not already done so. We have made submissions on behalf of our agency.
Part of the feedback process is ‘snap polls’ and the current poll is one that we are particularly passionate about as Managing Agents. The poll is regarding whether a Landlord should be able to issue a ‘without grounds’ Notice to Leave. In our Agency’s opinion the poll is poorly worded as it should clarify this can only be done at the end of a lease anyway and not during a fixed term tenancy. However, this is a critical poll as our understanding is that this right to terminate a tenancy without prescribing a reason has recently changed in other states.
As a property owner, we believe you should have the right to choose to end a tenancy at the end of a lease. This matter, along with ‘should a tenant have to ask permission to keep a pet at a property’ are the two hottest topics we have seen debated so far.
Please – in your interest! – Follow this link for information on how to Vote NO to this snap poll.
