Action that can be taken by the lessor
The RTRA sets out the actions that can be taken by the lessor.
- Issue a Notice To Remedy Breach due to a breach of Section 184 of the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (RTRA Act).
The Residential Tenancies Authority lists further action that can be taken if the breach is not resolved within 7 days or there are repeated breaches.
- Apply to Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) for an order terminating a residential tenancy due to objectionable behaviour (Section 297 of the RTRA Act)
Dispute in a body corporate
If you live in a unit and have a dispute with your neighbour you may be required to follow The Office of the Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management (BCCM) resolution process to ensure a fair outcome for all parties. Further information can be found here.
Contravention of body corporate by-laws
Under the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997, the responsibility for enforcing by-laws sits with the body corporate. Further information can be found here.
