A comparison of security of tenure in Queensland and in Western Europe
Wharton, Nathalie & Cradduck, Lucy M. (2011) A comparison of security of tenure in Queensland and in Western Europe. Monash University Law Review, 37(2), pp. 16-46.
Queensland residential tenancies are usually granted for up to 12 months with no guarantee of renewal. On expiration of the term, the landlord, without need to provide an explanation, can require the tenant to leave. Europeans find this unusual. As Hammar observes, to ‘never be sure whether ... you will be allowed to stay for another year ... is ok for a student, or for someone working ... but not for households’. This article informs Queensland policy makers and industry about European practices and concludes by proposing legislative amendments to realise the tenant’s security of tenure.
