The Queensland Government has extended temporary regulatory measures to 30 September 2021.

Protections that continue to apply until 30 September 2021 include:

  • provisions allowing tenants experiencing domestic and family violence to end their tenancies quickly
  • protections for tenants against being listed in a tenancy database for rent arrears caused by COVID-19 impacts
  • limits on re-letting costs for eligible tenants who end their fixed-term tenancies early
  • short term tenancy statement extensions for moveable dwellings.

No longer in place from 30 April 2021:

  • Entry restrictions and requirements to support COVID-19 social distancing measures
  • Relaxed repair and maintenance obligations

From 29 September 2020:

  • The 6-month eviction moratorium for COVID-19 rent arrears
  • Fixed-term agreement extensions for COVID-19 impacted tenants
  • Ending agreement provisions that prevent property owners ending tenancies with COVID-19 impacted tenants without grounds and provide additional grounds for parties to end tenancies (owner-occupation and sale of premises which require vacant possession)
  • Adjusted rent and bond processes that support parties to negotiate arrangements to manage COVID-19 impacts on their tenancies
  • Mandatory conciliation of COVID-19 related tenancy disputes through the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA)
