In property management we know that not all business is good business.

Lynn Smith – Common Form 6 Fails
The General Tenancy Agreement Form 18a and the entry condition report Form 1a are key documents when dealing with tenancy breaches and disputes.  Nick Brown will join RTA Senior Community Education Officer Lynn Smith to  highlight common areas of both documents which cause disputes and provide advice on how to get these forms right from the start of the tenancy.  They will also discuss the difference between a standard term and special term and what you can and can’t do legally.   Additionally Nick will share his expertise in renegotiating tenancy terms from one fixed term agreement to another.  He will discuss the RTRA Act provisions relating to rent/bond increases/decreases and significant  changes from  one agreement to another,  either fixed term or periodic.

Jill Eisenhuth – Strategies for Arrears Prevention
Jill Eisenhuth, of Raine and Horne Beenleigh, has  been operating in arguably one of the toughest markets in Queensland when it comes to rent arrears. She will share her proven strategies for arrears prevention and management as well as enforcement through QCAT.  She will provide  case study examples of QCAT experiences including when a tenant is awarded a stay and appeals a termination order.

Body Corporate Commission: 
Our special guest speakers from the Body Corporate Commission will help us learn what rights the owner and tenants have when there are issues on common property and what role the property manager can play.

Connie Mckee and QCAT Adjudicator Gabrielle Mewing:
I will join QCAT adjudicator Gabrielle Mewing  in a targeted session to help us get a better understanding of QCAT Forms including the Counter Application, Form 45 and 40.  The importance of published orders, evidence and compensation claims including re-letting costs and water will be discussed.
