I think all of the updates to the TA are reasonable.. Except ONE... So sometime in the next couple of years my tenants (who will hopefully be staying) will have to remove all of their stuff, so I can lay carpet... Despite the fact they are perfectly happy with their home! ---- As a part of the updated Tenancy Act, which came into effect as at August 1, 2015, a set of Minimum Standards have been specified which will be phased in over the next three years. These Minimum Standards regulate conditions and living standards for residential rental properties in Tasmania. An owner must not enter into, extend or renew a residential tenancy agreement unless the premises: From 1 August 2016 for all new/renewed/extended lease agreements entered from 1 August 2015 and from 1 August 2018 for all other lease agreements. In Good Repair / Fair Wear and Tear – During a Tenancy: this adds the responsibility to the owner to remedy items which are no longer in good repair. As an example, it is reasonable that after 10+ years a carpet ceases to be in good repair and an owner has to take steps to replace them.
