Residential tenancy forms
On 29 April 2016 new swimming pool laws came into effect. Go to the swimming pools page for more information.
Changes to tenancy laws mean it is now a material fact, that is, an issue that must be disclosed prior to entering into any agreement, if a property is listed on the register of residential properties that contain or have contained loose-fill asbestos insulation.
The standard tenancy agreement includes a requirement to notify tenants if the premises they want to lease is on the Loose-fill Asbestos Insulation register, or if the premises is added to the register during the tenancy.
The Residential Tenancy Agreement, the New tenant checklist, have been amended in line with the new laws.
