One of the major findings of the Australian Government Commission of Inquiry into
Poverty (1975) was, that in the area of residential tenancies, the body of landlord
tenant law throughout Australia afforded very little protection to the tenant.
During the late 1970's a number of Australian states commenced the process of
introducing reforms for the purpose of regulating the legal relationship between
landlord and tenant. As a result of that program, the last decade has seen all
Australian states (except Tasmania) introduce new residential tenancies legislation.
The variety of responses has included the introduction of new codes, which set out in
statutory form, the rights and duties of the parties during the tenancy agreement, and
the establishment (in some States) of new specialist tribunals to hear disputes between
parties to a tenancy contract.
The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the practical and legal effect of the current
body of landlord tenant law in Tasmania. The thesis considers the Residential
Tenancies Acts in other Australian states, and makes a number of recommendations
concerning desirable changes to the law in Tasmania.
