Business and Jobs Support Fund Submission

The AICSA has provided the South Australian Government with the following submission on behalf of all South Australian Conveyancers and their staff. We trust that some relief is provided as a result of this advocacy work.


Covid-19 Emergency Response Act 2020

As part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as part of a package that includes the Federal Government’s Mandatory Code of Conduct for commercial tenancies during the COVID-19 pandemic (Code of Conduct) (see below for more information), the South Australian Government passed the COVID-19 Emergency Response Bill 2020 on 8 April 2020. The COVID-19 Emergency Response Act 2020 (the Act) will make various temporary modifications to South Australian law in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Amongst other things, the Act will modify the operation of South Australian law in relation to commercial leases, and the provisions of commercial leases themselves, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Real Estate Industry Trends Report

BDO and REISA have released the latest edition of their Real Estate Industry Trends Report, powered by data from REI Forms Live.

When compared to the same period last year, the March 2020 Quarter recorded 7.0% less Residential Sales Agreements written than in the March 2019 Quarter.

See how the impacts of COVID-19 have started affecting Real Estate trends towards the end of the March 2020 Quarter.


Commercial Leasing Mandatory Code of Conduct

Commercial & Legal have been engaged by REISA to assist their members to gain an understanding of the new Code and how our Agents, Property Managers, Landlords, Tenants and other Members should respond when dealing with their commercial tenancies. REISA has kindly allowed the AICSA to provide these documents to our Members for your information.



I trust you continue to find our updates helpful and relevant. Please feel free to reach out to us via email at assist@aicsa.com.au if you require any assistance or to provide feedback.

Kind regards
