Residential Tenancies Amendment 2021
How the new rental reform could affect you
The Residential Tenancies Amendment Act 2021 is set to have a significant impact on landlord’s responsibilities and the way they must operate their tenancies. The changes will implement nearly 100 new amendments to the current residential Tenancies Act – and it is crucial to be across these changes that will impact a landlord’s legal obligations to their tenants. Notice period changes, the ability for tenants to make minor changes, and new enforcement measures to take actions against landlords who are not meeting their obligations are just a handful of what to expect.
These new rules will future proof our changing rental market as we continue to see increasing demand for rental properties and longer-term tenancies. The good news is that these changes are entirely manageable and will ultimately create the framework for a more secure renting environment.
As of 11th February 2021 various key changes come into effect and these impact ALL residential landlords both Private and managed.
