Residential Tenancies in Western Australia

Residential tenancies in WA are regulated under the Residential Tenancies Act 1987. The Act set out the rights and obligations of both the tenant and landlord in relation to commencing a tenancy, what to do during the tenancy, ending a tenancy, and resolving any problems that may arise.

Significant changes to the Act were made in 2013 and came into force with respect to residential tenancies in WA on 1 July of that year. If you are a tenant who rents a residential property, or a landlord who lets one, it is important that you are aware of the changes, as well as other important provisions of the Act, so that you understand what is expected of you under a residential tenancy agreement.

We have set out a summary of your rights and obligations below. However, if you are still unsure, contact our Civil Lawyers WA for a free chat or make an appointment with one of our Civil Lawyers at any of our 30 WA locations.
