Property & Lease Disputes FAQ’s
Common property and lease disputes can involve issues such as rental arrears, property damage, lease termination, maintenance disputes, or disagreements over rent increases. They often arise due to misunderstandings between landlords and tenants.
In Australia, both landlords and tenants have specific rights and responsibilities outlined in the lease agreement and governed by state or territory legislation. These include obligations related to rent payment, property maintenance, and dispute resolution.
To resolve property and lease disputes, it is advisable to communicate with the other party and attempt to reach an amicable solution. If this fails, you may seek mediation or alternative dispute resolution services provided by relevant state-based agencies. Legal action, such as filing a claim with a tribunal, may also be an option.
The process for eviction or lease termination is governed by state or territory residential tenancy legislation. It typically involves providing notice, following the required procedures, and, in some cases, applying to a tribunal for a possession order.
Rent increase regulations vary by state or territory in Australia. In most cases, landlords are required to provide tenants with notice of a rent increase, and the frequency of rent increases may be limited by law. It’s essential to be familiar with the rules in your specific location.
