Dear Valued Client/Landlord/ Property Investors and friends,

Good afternoon. 😊

As property owners, you are entitled to be supported by special regulatory protections during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Government’s proposed protections ignore our collective rights, take away our ability to derive critical income and take away control over an asset we have worked so hard to acquire. We strongly urge the Government to reconsider these damaging amendments, in favor of protections that offer a better balance of security and stability to property owners and tenants alike.


We have below two REIQ templates as well below a concise letter for you, as a valued client/property-investor and friend of LJ Gilland Real Estate to choose which format you are comfortable with, and email to the Government representative of your valuable investment property.


We strongly believe that it is in your best interest to take action immediately to request urgent intervention in this matter.  Please note that we post regular updates via our Facebook page so please check this page out as regularly as you are able to do so with warm regards.  The link to the page is

If you own an investment property in QLD then this should concern you.

There are three parts of the Covid 19 legislation that I have serious concerns:

  1. Landlords will not be able to recover the “deferred” rent once the tenant is able to resume normal rent payments
  2. Tenants will have the right to extend the lease by 6 months without landlord approval – potentially resulting in a 12 month lease period??
  3. Tenants can break lease and only have to pay the landlord 1 weeks rent (Potentially applies for 12 months)

You need to take action now:

  1. Watch the video from the CEO of REIQ – LINK REIQ Covit 19 Concerns
  2. Read the details below
  3. and send your letter of concern to the Premier of QLD – today

Be heard before 22 April 2020!

Everyone matters in real estate – that’s why it’s important everyone is recognized equally when it comes to the Palaszczuk Government’s COVID-19 residential property proposals. For landlords in particular, now is the time for your voice to be heard.

As the peak body for real estate in Queensland, The REIQ supports the need for tenant protection during COVID-19 however, we are fundamentally opposed to some of the proposed measures. You should be too. As a landlord, you will ultimately foot the bill if changes are not made to proposed amendments in their current form.

Whether you’re a landlord or real estate supporter, all it takes is a few simple steps for change to take place:

STEP ONE: Copy-paste the appropriate template letter provided of your choosing into an email.

(1) Template letter for landlords

(2) Template letter for real estate supporters

(3) <Start> A link to find your local state member can be found here.

The Real Estate Industry like most industries is in turmoil due to Covid19 (Coronavirus). The difference for our sector is the Labor Government has released information without any legislative change which is throwing the industry in further chaos, fear, and confusion. All parties (tenants, lessors and property agents) to residential tenancy contracts are being heavily impacted due to this.

We write you to ask for your assistance and understanding as our state representative in the Queensland Parliament and request urgent intervention.

Currently, all we have are Government “words” on their new website called the “Hub”. There has been no draft legislation released as at 15th April 2020 10am. The Government released the hub information on the 9th April in the absence of any legislation. The State Government released “HUB” link can be found here. This is leading to confusion, fear, uncertainty and unnecessary disputes in already trying times. We particularly make mention of the Q & A part of the “Hub” relating to what tenants can do, and what lessor cannot. It is of utmost concern and urgent attention is required as a representative of the Government, regardless of political persuasion.

As our state representative, can you please advise when the draft legislation will be released? Will there be public consultation? We can be contacted on the following details set out below and thank you for your urgent assistance and attention to prevent another industry being significantly impacted during these times unnecessarily.

Insert your details etc



STEP TWO: Insert your name at the end of the letter in your email.

STEP THREE: Copy and paste the following subject header into your email: Urgent Review of Special COVID-19 Residential Property Protections

STEP FOUR: Copy and paste Premier Palaszczuk’s email address into the recipient area in your email:

STEP FIVE: Press send.

It’s never been so simple to have your voice be heard. And because everyone matters in real estate, spread the word and encourage others to have their say and let’s all be heard together as one.

Now is the time to speak up before Parliament sits on Wednesday, 22 April 2020 to introduce amendments.



Best Regards
