Renting in Tasmania

The Residential Tenancy Amendment Act 2013 commences on 1 October 2014

This means that there are some changes in the rights and obligations of property owners and tenants starting from 1 October 2014 onwards. These include: 


* The creation of Minimum Standards for premises, and a provision relating to photographs were originally included in this Amendment Act. However, several additional minor changes are currently being drafted and will be put to Parliament by the end of the 2014. Therefore these provisions are not commencing on 1 October 2014.

A revised version of the Rental Guide will be published in early 2015 when all amendments have commenced.

In the meantime, a Fact Sheet [pdf/158kb/2 pages] summarising the changes is also provided. 

The 'Renting in Tasmania' web pages have been updated to reflect the changes.
