The government is introducing legislation to amend the Residential Tenancies Act 1995 in regards to domestic violence in a residential tenancy.

Attached is the proposed amendment bill and there is also a more detailed Information Paper attached as a separate news item.

The amendments to the Residential Tenancies Act 1995 will affect all landlords in South Australia not just our members.

We welcome all comments on this issue. Please email your comments and concerns to before 21 August, 2015.

Our association does not excuse domestic violence, however the rights of landlords must also be protected.
