Residential Tenancy Law Reform

Closes 23 Jun 2023

Opened 14 Apr 2023


The Minister for Housing and Communities has published a paper setting out his proposed approach to improving the existing Residential Tenancy Law, making enhancements to residential tenancies and broadening the scope of the law to include matters such as rent stabilisation, social housing provision and the introduction of a new housing tribunal.  

The paper sets the direction of travel for much-needed modernisation of residential tenancy legislation. Given the scale of work that is required to introduce the changes proposed, it is essential that everyone has the chance to contribute their views. This will help shape policy and legislation which can meet the needs of tenants and landlords in Jersey, whilst helping to ensure that the resulting draft law is supported and implemented without delay.
