Australian Capital Territory

Prepare notices to serve on your tenant or your landlord with these downloadable template Landlord and Tenant Notice Forms for Australian Capital Territory.

Q. Can the landlord raise the rent during the term of the tenancy?

A. The Residential Tenancies Act, 1997 prohibits rent increases during the first year of the tenancy. After that, the rent cannot be raised more than once in a 12-month period without endorsement by the Tribunal. The landlord must give the tenant 8 weeks' notice prior to raising the rent.

Q. How much notice must be given to terminate the tenancy?

A. The tenant is required to give 3 weeks' notice to end a tenancy. If the landlord is terminating the tenancy for grounds, the notice period is dependent on the nature of the grounds and whether or not it is a recurring breach, and only after a Notice to Remedy has been served. The parties may terminate the tenancy by mutual written agreement at any time.
