Tenancy law changes from July 1 will improve conditions for Queensland tenants who are listed on a tenancy database. Queensland Housing Minister De Brenni released a press statement highlighting the changes.

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

Listing parties will have up to six months to comply with some parts of the new legislation, including ensuring removal of all listings that are more than 3 years old.

For how the changes apply to you see the TQ Tenancy Database fact sheet under Information for tenants
