Residential Tenancies in South Australia

A residential lease is a rental agreement between the owner and the occupant of premises used for living purposes. The main piece of legislation governing residential tenancies in South Australia is the Residential Tenancies Act 1995. This legislation provides the mandatory obligations of landlords and tenants which are read into the lease agreement and therefore form part of the arrangement between the parties.

On 31 March 2015, the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal took over conduct of residential tenancies disputes from the South Australian Residential Tenancies Tribunal, which is now defunct.
