Abstract

On 23 April 2021, the COVID-19 Emergency Response and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2021 received assent and extended COVID-19 emergency response legislation, including the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation (COVID-19 Emergency Response) Regulation 2020, to 30 September 2021.

Today (29 April 2021), the Executive Council approved changes to the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation (COVID-19 Emergency Response) Amendment Regulation 2021, to repeal adjustments to entry rights and repair obligations and clarify the misuse of notice to leave offence. These amendments commence on 1 May 2021.

The Residential Rental Hub has been updated to reflect changes implemented by the Amendment Regulation and an updated Residential Tenancies Practice Guide will be published soon. When visiting the Rental Hub please use the following links:
