Changes to tenancy laws regarding the listing of tenants on a residential tenancy database are set to take effect on July 1.  Today Housing Minister De Brenni released a press statement announcing the commencement date for the legislative variations.

Key changes include:

  • lessors/agents must advise prospective tenants of the databases they use, the reason for which they use them, and how the database operators can be contacted
  • lessors/agents must advise prospective tenants that they are listed on a tenancy database and in particular, advise them of the person that listed them and how they can challenge the listing
  • a tenant must not be listed for more than 3 years

Not all changes take immediate affect on July 1, with the new legislation setting out how the changes will be phased in over six months.
