60 day freeze on evictions

Eligible COVID-19 impacted residential tenants who cannot meet their residential rent payments will be protected from eviction during the moratorium period commencing from 14 July and finishing at the end of 11 September 2021.

The 60 day protection against eviction for rental arrears applies to all residential tenancy agreements, including informal, unwritten agreements.

A landlord or agent may continue to seek a termination in other circumstances including:

  • sale of premises
  • illegal use of premises
  • damage to property
  • hardship
  • end of fixed term agreement
  • no grounds termination.

The usual notice periods apply in these circumstances.
