Attention WA Landlords: Residential Tenancies Act review 2019

It has been more than 10 years since rental laws have been reviewed in Western Australia.

The government is reviewing, the Residential Tenancies Act 1987 and want to hear from the public.

The State government is encouraging everyone to read the public consultation discussion paper and to share their thoughts and feedback.

You can download the consultation paper here: http://www.commerce.wa.gov.au/publications/residential-tenancies-act-review-2019-public-consultation-paper

The public consultation discussion paper follows the tenancy life cycle and explores potential issues that may arise at each stage. 

The government is seeking your input on key issues for reform including:

  • improving security of tenure for tenants;
  • should termination of a tenancy require reasons and do away with "no grounds” terminations; 
  • disclosure of important information before a tenancy begins;
  • minimum standards of rental properties and maintenance and repairs;
  • tenant responsibility for willful damage;
  • bonds, rental increases and other charges;
  • making a rental property a home, including the right to keep pets and make minor modifications; 
  • regulation of boarding and lodging and room-by-room rentals; and
  • changes to the dispute resolution process.
