In Queensland 34% of households live in rented homes. The Tenants’ Union of Queensland is a specialist community legal service that provides tenancy law advice and assists and represents renting households. Our vision is to ensure renting in Queensland is a secure and respected housing tenure and tenant’s rights are respected. We have a free statewide advice service for Queensland residential tenants including caravan park and boarding house residents.
Need advice? Call our statewide advice service. Phone 1300 744 263 Mon/Wed/Thurs 9am-12.30pm and Tues/Wed 3.30pm-7pm.
