Special COVID-19 Protections for residential tenants and owners
The Palaszczuk Government has unveiled a package of measures to implement the freeze on evictions.
Deputy Premier Jackie Trad is encouraging tenants, property owners and agents to work together to sustain tenancies during this public health emergency.
“We’ve all heard of stories of too many Queenslanders who are doing it tough right now, and the Palaszczuk Government recognises the hardship they are suffering.
“It’s not in the interest of anyone to have tenants left without a place to go when we are fighting to prevent the spread of a deadly disease.
“We will not allow anyone to be evicted because they can’t pay their rent as a result of this crisis.”
