Queensland Tenancy Law Changes

Recent changes to tenancy law were passed by Queensland Parliament on 23 May 2024 and will impact your tenancy or rooming agreement under the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (‘the Act’). Not all changes will commence at the same time. Some of the changes will commence on Assent (6 June 2024), while other changes will start on Proclamation (date yet to be announced).

QSTARS may assist you with:

  • Advice and assistance to understand your tenancy rights and responsibilities
  • Support to resolve your tenancy issue
  • Advocacy support to talk to your lessor or agent
  • Help to write a letter or fill in tenancy forms
  • Help to attend or prepare for a QCAT tenancy tribunal hearing
  • Referral to other services if needed

The QSTARS program is managed by Tenants Queensland and delivered in collaboration with partner organisations across Queensland.
