Tasmanian Government is debating a 120 day moratorium on terminating leases for non-payment of rent

March 25, 2020


The ABC has reported that the Tasmanian Government is debating a bill that would prevent landlords from terminating leases for non-payment of rent for a period of 120 days, with a possible extension of a further 90 days in exceptional circumstances.  It is intended to protect both residential and commercial tenants.

Other measures are proposed, including the ability to break leases in cases of hardship and possible restrictions on rent increases.
