The Residential Rental Hub

In 2020, the Queensland Government acted quickly to implement temporary regulatory measures to support the residential rental sector manage the impacts of COVID-19 on residential leases.

From 1 May 2022 normal residential tenancy arrangements apply in Queensland following the expiry of COVID-19 temporary regulatory measures on 30 April 2022.

On 20 October 2021 the domestic and family violence (DFV) protections introduced under the COVID-19 residential tenancies response became permanent under the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008.

Working together

Tenants and property owners should continue negotiating adjustments to manage any COVID-19 impacts on their residential tenancy arrangements.

The Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) free dispute resolution service is available to help you reach agreement and resolve issues, including about rent and ending agreements.
