The Residential Tenancies Amendment Regulations 2016 and the Residential Tenancies Further Amendment Regulations 2016 commence today.
Under these regulations, landlords and property managers must use the updated residential tenancy agreement form and notices.
The residential tenancy agreement form now includes a section that allows tenants and landlords to give permission to be served notices electronically.
The updated notices include information that they may be sent electronically if consent has been given in the agreement.
Consent must be voluntary and should be in writing.
