Residential parks law review 2014

Consumer Protection was seeking the views of the community as part of a review of laws that regulate residential parks in Western Australia.


The purpose of this review was to assess the effectiveness of the operation of the Residential Parks (Long-stay Tenants) Act 2006 (RPLT Act). The Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement (the paper) is the next step in the consultation process and sets out options developed after analysing all of the feedback received in the response to the 2012 discussion paper

The paper tests those options, sets out some of the pros and cons and seeks feedback from stakeholders. The options seek to balance the competing interests of tenants and park operators, by providing appropriate protection for tenants, while seeking to ensure the residential parks sector remains viable for operators.

The paper is comprehensive and covers a large number of issues.

Feedback from this stage of the review will assist the Department in developing and submitting to the Government, recommendations for reform of the tenancy laws for people living long-term in the residential parks sector.
