Ending tenancies fairly | Renting in Queensland

Both tenants and owners benefit from certainty about how and when a tenancy will end. It helps tenants to plan their future housing needs. It also gives owners income security and allows them to plan for new tenants.

We want to ensure that tenants and owners can end tenancies fairly.

Proposed changes

We’ve identified reforms to achieve these objectives. Under our recommended changes:

  • owners would no longer be able to end a tenancy without a valid reason
  • the list of reasons that an owner can provide would be extended and enhanced
  • tenants would also have additional grounds to end a tenancy.
