Domestic and Family Violence | Renting in Queensland

Everyone has the right to feel safe and to live their life free of violence, abuse or intimidation. The Queensland Government is committed to reducing the rate of domestic and family violence and is progressing the recommendations of the Not Now, Not Ever: Putting an End to Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland report.

Proposed changes

We want to strengthen tenancy laws to include additional protections that help tenants experiencing domestic and family violence to stay or leave their current rental property safely.

We are recommending changes to ensure that tenants experiencing domestic and family violence can end a tenancy without the usual notice requirements and can easily access rental bond funds.
