COVID-19 tenancy protections update
The Queensland Government has acted swiftly to correct an administrative oversight with the tabling of the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation (COVID-19 Emergency Response) Regulation 2020.
While made by Governor in Council and notified as required, the Regulation was not tabled within 14 calendar days of being notified as required under the COVID-19 Emergency Response Act 2020.
This action ensures the Regulation is taken to be validly made, notified and tabled so that it continues to have effect and all actions taken in reliance on the Regulation are lawful.
This means that no agreements negotiated between tenants and property owners, either privately or through conciliation, will be impacted or affected by this issue.
