Tenancy Database Listings

In residential tenancies if a Tribunal terminates your tenancy for rent arrears or repeated breaches or if you are given a Notice to Remedy Breach for rent arrears and leave owing rent in excess of the bond amount, the lessor or agent can list your name on a tenancy database.

If your name is listed on a tenancy database it can affect your ability to rent a property in the future. You must be notified if your former agent or lessor proposes to put your name on a tenancy database.

The Act sets out lawful reasons you can be listed. You can apply to the Tribunal for an urgent hearing if you dispute a proposed database listing or an existing listing.
