Stage 2 Rental Reforms 2023
The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) appreciated the opportunity to provide our views on the Stage 2 Rental Law Reforms Options Paper (the Options Paper) released by the Department Communities, Housing and Digital Economy for community consultation on 18 April 2023.
As the peak body, we represent the thousands of real estate professionals who facilitate and manage the vast majority of residential tenancy relationships in Queensland.
This role enables us to gather unique insights and information directly from those who deal with both parties in a rental relationship.
As outlined in the below submission, the REIQ opposes the implementation of Stage 2 rental reforms at this time. Although we are prepared to support some of the proposed measures in a modified format, we consider the timing and nature of these reforms to be inappropriate and extremely dangerous given the current unprecedented rental crisis and limited housing supply.
