New fact sheets have been released to help residential tenants, landlords and real estate agents understand their rights and obligations if a tenant cannot pay their rent due to the impact of COVID-19.

The fact sheets clearly set out;

  • What tenants need to do to seek help from their landlords or real estate agents;
  • support available to landlords to facilitate a mutual agreement with a tenant if the tenant’s income has been reduced; and
  • real estate agents’ responsibilities to help facilitate discussions between landlords and tenants.
