Anna Palaszczuk's Queensland Government's proposed Special COVID-19 Protections favour tenants at the expense of landlords. I am absolutely opposed to these proposed measures. As a landlord you should be too. Landlords will ultimately foot the bill if these proposals are approved.
Most landlords have nothing against fair legal protection for tenants in these difficult economic times but we don't want to see landlord left in a position with no protection against tenants who will take advantage of this legislation. Most landlords are hard-working people who are trying to prepare for a comfortable retirement without having to rely on government hand-outs. This proposal will put landlords at risk of unscrupulous tenants who can now live rent-free for 12 months. This proposal from Palaszczuk's Labor government is misdirected, ill-conceived, impractical, ludicrous, ridiculous and downright socialistic which will have ramifications for landlords for years to come. If this proposal is past by QLD State Parliment it will not be easy to change later. Think about it - when we give a lolly to a child how do they react when we take it away? They have a tantrum!
Please read "An Open Letter to Landlords" from The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) regarding these changes to Tenancy Laws which will be passed on 22 April 2020.
Please read this letter from REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella to landlords so we can take action before it's too late.
