General tenancy fact sheets

These fact sheets have been prepared specifically for tenants and property managers/owners in general tenancies in Queensland: houses, townhouses, units and houseboats. These types of accommodation are covered by the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (the Act).

The RTA has also produced a range of fact sheets for tenants/residents and property managers/owners or providers living in or managing rooming accommodation, caravans and moveable dwellings. These are available on the Rooming accommodation fact sheets and Caravan parks (moveable dwelling) fact sheets pages.
