About TQ

Tenants Queensland (formerly Tenants’ Union of Queensland) was established in 1986 and seeks to represent the concerns of all Queensland tenants  who live in rental accommodation, including caravan park and boarding house residents.

For many years Tenants Queensland has performed an important role for Queensland tenants; providing specialist advice services for tenants, advocating on behalf of tenants, and securing improvements to Queensland’s residential tenancy laws.

Our vision is a society where renting is a secure tenure and tenants can understand and exercise their rights and responsibilities under tenancy law.

We aim to improve conditions for residential tenants by assisting tenants to understand and exercise their legal rights and advocate their concerns.

Tenants Queensland provides a range of tenancy information and advocacy services  including: a statewide telephone advice service for tenants, tenancy publications, a tenancy law training program, and tenancy law research and policy development.

Tenants Queensland operates a specialist  legal service for tenancy law matters, that is funded under the Legal Aid Community Legal Services Program.

Tenants Queensland also manages and delivers the Queensland Statewide Tenant Advice and Referral Service (QSTARS) which provides a  statewide advice service for Queensland renters. This program is funded by the Queensland government.

Tenants Queensland  has a statewide office in Brisbane and operates regional QSTARS offices in collaboration with partner organisations.
