The Queensland government today introduced the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation and Other Legislation Amendment Bill which will, amongst other things, provide new options to evict social housing tenants. It also introduces limits on the Tribunal when considering whether to evict a social housing, so that they do not refuse to terminate the tenancy just because the tenant is a social housing tenant.
If passed, it will also reduce the notice time required to end a social housing tenancy agreement when the tenant is no longer eligible for housing. The time is reduced from two months to one month. We will seek more information and post it when we get it.
