Property condition

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.
