The Committee was established to consider and report on the Residential Tenancies Amendment (Prohibiting No Grounds Evictions) Bill 2024. The bill seeks to amend the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 to prohibit no grounds terminations of residential tenancy agreements, and for other purposes.


The Committee will inquire and seek public input into the provisions of the bill, the grounds for which an eviction is reasonable, the appropriateness of evidence requirements to support reasonable grounds or a penalty scheme for those who falsely claim a reasonable ground; and any unintended consequences, including on housing affordability and availability for renters and owners raised by this bill. The Committee will also conduct a jurisdictional comparison of no grounds evictions policies.
