Legislative protections announced for renters

The Queensland government has announced legislative protections for residential and commercial tenants due to be finalised in late April in light of COVID-19 impacts on the economy. For residential tenants, protections include: preventing evictions for the next six months; supporting reasonable rent reductions where incomes has been impacted by COVID-19, protecting renters from accruing crippling debts during a dispute; improved safety and security for those experiencing domestic or family violence; and, financial support for the payment of rent for those in economic hardship of up to four weeks rent. View more on the Make Renting Fair website and the Queensland Treasury information sheet. Tenants Queensland has also developed an information pack for renters, including international students and those in sharehouses, affected by COVID-19, about their rights, and how to broach negotiations with lessors and agents.
