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.
