Established in 1986, Tenants Queensland (TQ) is a specialist statewide community and legal service providing free tenancy law advisory services for residential tenants. TQ seeks to protect and improve the rights of all people who rent their home in Queensland including those who live in marginal tenures such as caravan parks and boarding houses.
TQ provides a range of tenancy information and advocacy services including a statewide telephone advice service, tenancy and legal casework for renters, tenancy publications, a tenancy law training program and research and policy development in relation to tenancy law issues. TQ has been at the forefront of all tenancy law reform since our establishment.
In September 2015, TQ was awarded the tender to deliver the new Statewide Tenant Advice and Referral Service (QSTARS) program across Queensland. As the lead provider, TQ is working with seven partner organisations to build and deliver this new and exciting program.
