RTA review fact sheet - Repairs and maintenance


Consultation status: CLOSED

Submissions closed at 5pm on 30 June 2020. 

How do we ensure landlords do repairs and maintenance to their property?

Possible options

  • Require all landlords to lodge a maintenance bond with the Bond Administrator.
  • Educate landlords on their obligations to undertake repairs and maintenance.

Tell us what you think...

  • Should landlords be required to deposit a bond with the Bond Administrator to cover the cost of repairs to the property if the need arises?
  • If a landlord’s bond was introduced, what would be a fair amount?
  • Is there another way to make sure landlords pay for repairs in a timely manner?
