New legislation introduced

On 10 August 2017, the Hon Michael de Brenni MP, Minister for Housing and Public Works and Minister for Sport introduced the Housing Legislation (Building Better Futures) Amendment Bill 2017 into the Queensland Parliament. 

The bill proposes to amend the Housing Act 2003; Manufactured Homes (Residential Parks) Act 2003; Residential Services (Accreditation) Act 2002; Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008; and Retirement Villages Act 1999.

The objective of the amendments to these Acts is to ensure fairness and consumer protections for people who are either living in regulated accommodation or considering moving into these types of housing while enabling the continued viability of these industries and sectors.

The Bill has been referred to the Public Works and Utilities Committee for detailed consideration. The Committee is due to report by 28 September 2017.

The Committee invites submissions addressing any aspect of the bill from all interested parties. Closing date for written submissions is Monday, 28 August 2017 at 4.00pm.
