November 22, 2021

The Residential Tenancies Authority urges Queensland tenants to remain vigilant and be alert when searching for their next rental property. 

Common scams can include online classified ads or social media posts from people pretending to be real property managers or owners that mislead tenants into paying deposits or bonds for rental properties that are sometimes fake or unavailable addresses.

In this episode, RTA’s Marc Fidler takes us through some tips on how to protect yourself from a rental scam.
