From 1 November 2019 – On 1 November 2018 the ACT Government tabled a Bill (the Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill 2018(No 2)) that introduced some significant changes to all tenancies in the ACT relating to pets, rent increases, tenants making modifications and break lease fees. The Bill was debated and passed on 21 February 2019 and due to commence in March 2020.
On 3 October the ACT Government brought forward commencement of the changes to 1 November. We are updating all of our information in line with these changes. This means that until our factsheets are updated, our information kit order forms have been suspended.
In the meantime, the ACT Government has developed some fact sheets regarding the changes, they can be accessed here.
The ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) has updated information in relation to these changes and new applications that can be made to the Tribunal, we have an overview here.
