Today the Tenants’ Union of Queensland (TUQ) confirmed that they will not be funded by the state government to represent the interests of tenants in the current review of tenancy law. This means there is no specialist tenant advocate supported to participate in the review.
The TUQ report that a door has been left open by the government for future negotiations, one which they say they will eagerly pursue. However, the decision by the State, means there is no longer any of the millions of dollars worth of interest generated on tenants’ bonds provided for specialist tenant services in Queensland.
