Attn ACT Landlords- new rental reforms announced

New rental reforms have been introduced into the ACT Legislative Assembly, which is centred on occupancy agreements for student accommodation, boarding houses, emergency housing & caravan parks.

More clarity of the rights and obligations for landlords or "grantors” and "occupants” are amongst the proposed changes.

There will be mandatory minimum protections for tenants such as protections against unreasonable evictions and access to communal areas.

The proposed changes will also make it easier for a tenant to exit a share house arrangement. Presently, a rental agreement could end on a share house, if one of the tenants leave.
