Tasmania Tenancy Help
If you are renting a home in Tasmania or thinking of doing so soon, the information in this guide will help you avoid common renting pitfalls and to have a harmonious (and lawful) relationship with the property owner or agent. The information on the website outlines the tenants rights and responsibilities in relation to the Residential Tenancies Act 1997. The Act applies to both public and private tenancies, and sets out the rights and responsibilities of landlords, agents and tenants.
This guide doesn’t take the place of the Act, nor does it pretend to cover everything; but it will give you a good working knowledge of your rights and responsibilities as a tenant. It is not legal advise.
