Each Australian state and territory has its own rental market regulatory structure, and as a result different local bodies are required to manage Tenancy Acts, update laws and resolve disputes between tenants and landlords.

The rental tenancy authority by region is as follows:

  • ACT Residential Tenancies Tribunal

  • New South Wales Consumer, Trader & Tenancy Tribunal

  • Northern Territory Consumer and Business Affairs and Northern Territory Department of Justice

  • Queensland Residential Tenancies Authority

  • South Australia Residential Tenancies Tribunal

  • Tasmania Consumer Affairs and Fair Trading and the Residential Tenancies Commissioner

  • Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal

  • Western Australia Department of Consumer and Employment Protection and a Magistrates Court
