Knowledge is Power Property Managers

Today’s Licensee and Career Property Manager are required to have a sound knowledge of a vast and diverse range of compliance issues. A common misunderstanding in the industry is the role of the RTA (Residential Tenancies Authority). What must be remembered is the RTA only administers the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 and Regulation.  The following matters that affect property managers daily in their careers are set out in different legislations and under other Government Departments.

·        Pool Laws
·        Safety Switches
·        Special Terms
·        Smoke Alarms
·        PAMD Act and Codes of Conduct
·        Discrimination
·        Tree and fencing laws
·        QCAT and Tribunal

It is important to note that one may speak with the RTA about a matter listed above however they do not specialise in those laws.
