Stage 2 Rental Law Reforms and Continuing Professional Development


On 10 April 2024, the REIQ provided our Submission to the Queensland Government in relation to the Residential Tenancies And Rooming Accommodation And Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2024 (the RTRAOLA Bill). The RTRAOLA Bill was introduced by the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Planning and Minister for Public Works on 21 March 2024.

Stage 2 Rental Law Reforms

Although the REIQ is supportive of some of the proposed measures in the RTRAOLA Bill, there are a number of proposed changes we are opposed to and as outlined in our Submission, we have identified a series of drafting errors and omissions that must be urgently addressed.

In our Submission, we make 39 recommendations for significant amendments to be made to the RTRAOLA Bill to ensure the proposed laws are fair, balanced and practically feasible.

Continuing professional development for property agents

The REIQ welcomes the introduction of a CPD regime for property agents in Queensland in line with other jurisdictions.

For almost a decade, the REIQ has strongly advocated for a state-wide regime of CPD as a condition of holding and renewing a real estate licence or registration in Queensland. Since the election of the current Government, the REIQ has regularly and consistently discussed this issue with the appointed Attorney-General and Minister.

Subject to our comments provided in our Submission, the REIQ is supportive of the CPD regime being introduced by the Government.
