Knowledge & Advice
Property legislation is under constant review. In 1997 we saw major changes in the introduction of The Residential Tenancy Act 1997 (TAS) Residential Tenancy Act 1997 (TAS), introduction of the Rental Deposit Authority in 2009, Residential Tenancy Amendment (Smoke Alarms) Act 2012, Residential Tenancy (Smoke Alarms) Regulations 2012, all of which affected the relationships and duties of landlords and tenants.

More changes were introduced in October 2014 which included changes to certain notice periods, ending a tenancy agreement early, changes to the role of the Residential Tenancy Commissioner (rent increases; repairs) and clarification about definitions and other various matters (fuses,light globes/tubes,tap washers)

As of 1 August 2015, the Residential Tenancy Act 1997 will include a set of minimum standards for residential tenancies. These standards will be phased in over several years to enable owners to ensure their properties comply with the standards.

We are well trained to handle such situations and know how best to represent you before the court.
