There has been a long history of Tenants Queensland (previously known as the tenants union) wishing for the without grounds provision to be removed from tenancy law. Read more information on this matter here
Section 291 clearly sets out when a notice to leave without reason cannot be given to a tenant.
Section 292 protects tenants who believe a lessor has contravened the provision.
Therefore, there is no need to add increased legislation unnecessarily.
Investors should continue to have the right to lawfully terminate a tenancy without reason. If investors comply with legislation, a lessor should have the right of possession without having to state a reason.
291 Notice to leave without ground
(1) The lessor may give a notice to leave the premises to the tenant without stating a ground for the notice.
(2) However, the lessor must not give a notice to leave under this section because—
(a) the tenant has applied, or is proposing to apply, to a tribunal for an order under this Act; or
(b) the tenant—
(i) has complained to a government entity about an act or omission of the lessor adversely affecting the tenant; or
(ii) has taken some other action to enforce the tenant’s rights; or
(c) an order of a tribunal is in force in relation to the lessor and tenant.
