New Residential Tenancies Authority Board

By David Bell

A new board has been appointed for the Residential Tenancies Authority in Queensland which may be of interest to anyone thinking of investing in real estate in Rockhampton.

The revitalisation demonstrates the Newman government's commitment to improving frontline services to benefit families in the region.

New board members will make sure the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) is efficient and customer-focused, according to Housing Minister Tim Mander.

"Around a third of Queensland households rent their home, and another 13 per cent receive some investment income from rental properties, so it’s vital that the rental sector gets the attention it deserves," he said.

The RTA provides advice and information to landlords, property managers and tenants about issues such as dispute resolution, bond management, right of access and maintenance, as well as information, policy and education services.

Around three quarters of a million dollars worth of rental bonds are invested by the RTA which is also responsible for safeguarding 513,000 properties to the tune of $160 billion.

If you are looking to find tenants to rent property in Rockhampton, the improved services may be of interest because they will allow you as a landlord to better understand the rules and regulations governing residential tenancies.
