Covid-19 Update | Tenancy Law Changes

Hope you're staying safe and well during these difficult times.

In response to Covid-19 the government has announced several changes to the Residential Tenancies Act which have come into affect. This has been applied through the COVID-19 Response (Urgent Management Measures) Amendment Act.

So everyone is on the same page and to reduce uncertainty, the government has provided clarification on the following in a PDF:

  • Context

  • Moving House

  • Rent Freeze

  • Tenancy Termination

Rather than re-posting the government's clarification, below is the link so you can read the clarification straight from the source.

You can read the government's clarification PDF on the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development here. The PDF can be downloaded at the bottom of the page.
