There is a range of regulations and legislation that may apply to real estate, including property sales and management in Australia.

Legislation is a law that has been made and enacted by a legislature, such as a parliament.

There are many laws that apply to real estate practice. Keep in mind this list does not cover all the legislation that affects real estate practice, but is a summary of what agents could consider most important.

Legislation often gets updated and changed.

This list of legislation was current at the time of publication. Last updated September 2022.

Students can learn more about real estate legislation and law applicable to real estate practice as part of the Certificate IV in Real Estate Practice course. Specifically, unit CPPREP4003 (Access and interpret legislation in real estate).

All entry-level courses for real estate include this unit as required by the state and territory regulators in Australia.

I often get asked a lot of questions as to how to start learning about real estate or start work in the real estate industry, so I’ve recently updated our real estate courses webpage, which now goes through and explains some of the things to consider before enrolling into a real estate course such as learning about your state or territory regulator and understanding the suitability/eligibility requirements to apply for a real estate licence.

I have also put together career pathways for real estate and estimated average weekly salaries based on government data and my own knowledge.

Finally, I’m always happy to answer any questions you may have about licensing and getting started in real estate. Leave a comment below or book in a time to speak with one of our friendly course advisors.

Thanks for reading, and keep sending your questions through to us!

Until next time 🙂
