Property condition | Renting in Queensland

The Open Doors to Renting Reform community consultation has now closed. Thank you for having your say on how we can improve renting in Queensland.

Every Queenslander has a right to live in a safe, secure and sustainable home.

It’s important that rental properties across the state are fit to live in and stay in good repair throughout a tenancy.

We asked you to tell us your experiences and ideas about:

  • minimum housing standards in a rental property
  • repairs and maintenance
  • energy efficiency options to minimise cost of living.

See what Queenslanders had to say in the forums and snap poll results.
