From 1 October 2022 Queensland will see significant changes to residential tenancies law. Find out what they will mean for strata.


Top 3 Takeaways for Tenancy Laws: The Impact On Strata


Know Who The Occupiers Are 

Any lease more than six months should have details recorded on the body corporate roll, including details of the occupier (tenant) and the agent as well. 

Stay Properly Informed 

Tenancy law changes are open to being politicised because the different interests are very strongly held – like in strata. Rely upon the appropriate information and advice from agencies such as RTA and BCCM, or seek legal advice.  

Review Your By-Laws
