Minimum Standards

Under the new rental laws, residential rental providers (landlords) must ensure that their rental property meets certain minimum standards. The minimum standards will cover basic but important requirements relating to amenity, safety and privacy, and residential rental providers will owe a duty to ensure their property meets these standards.


We support residential rental providers (RRP) to provide the following minimum standards

- Functioning heating in the property’s main living area

- All power outlets and lighting circuits to be connected to a circuit breaker and residual current device

Please reference Minimum Standards in detail


Refer to: Residential Tenancies Regulation 2020 Doc Regulation 29, Schedule 4
