RTA review fact sheet - Landlord disclosure
COVID-19 coronavirus notice
The deadline for submissions to the Residential Tenancies Act Consultation has been extended to 30 June 2020. This extension aims to ensure all stakeholders have sufficient opportunity to provide a submission, considering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Should a landlord have to give certain information to a tenant before a tenancy agreement is signed?
- Educate applicant tenants to ask the right questions before they sign a tenancy agreement.
- Require a landlord to tell an applicant tenant certain things about the property, such as any intentions to sell it in the next 12 months or whether it contains asbestos.
- Consumer Protection to maintain, and make publicly available, a database of landlords who have been proven not to comply with the tenancy laws.
Tell us what you think...
- Can a tenant access all of the information they need about a possible rental simply by asking the right questions or purchasing a property inspection report? Why or why not?
- What information should a landlord be required to tell a person applying for a rental? Why?
- Should a public database of landlords who have proven not to comply with tenancy laws be available? Why or why not?
