HOME > PRIVATE LANDLORD
It’s a big responsibility to be a private landlord. You are a private landlord if you have decided not to hire the services of a property manager. Instead, you are going to manage your rental property, whether it is a room or part of your family home, a granny flat in the backyard, an apartment or separate dwelling at a different location.
Information for private landlords
As a private landlord, you need to be aware of and implement appropriate processes to manage and document the tenancy. Implementing effective communication and organisation are essential.
The tenancy for a private rental property requires the same documentation as a managed rental property. Each state and territory produces a range of legal documents for managing tenancies.
In Australia, there are federal and state laws which govern and regulate the management of rental properties. As a private landlord, it is your responsibility to be aware of, and implement the laws according to the relevant ACT.
