EAC Online Forms
The above changes have already been made on EAC’s online forms so the next time that you create a new form the changes will be there so you have nothing to worry about.
New leases have been printed to include the new change. Current residential tenancy agreement leases can still be used if you have them so you won't need to throw them out, but you will need to include an addendum.The addendum allows you to strike out the existing clause and use the new clause that is now required.
