Information for tenants affected by the floods and storms in Queensland
When you rent a place to live in Queensland your tenancy agreement is covered by the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008.
Tenants Queensland has developed a fact sheet answering some frequently asked questions about what to do when your rented residential property floods.
Issues covered include:
- If you want to leave
- If the lessor wants you to leave
- If you want to stay
- Cleaning due to flood damage
- Further help
It is referring to residential tenancies, however most of the information also applies to rooming accommodation such as boarding houses.
