SUVA, Fiji (Fijilive, Jan. 6, 2015) – Fiji's Ministry of Trade is looking to develop a Residential Tenancy Law aimed to protect the tenants and the interest of landlords.

Minister for trade Faiyaz Koya said the ministry will be working with the Fiji Commerce Commission and the Solicitor General's Office in the drawing up of the law.

Koya said the new law would also ensure fair treatment and fair play in the market.

Meanwhile, all landlords are encouraged to register with the Commerce Commission and to maintain proper records, as per requirements of the commission.

These records and documents include Letting Agreements and receipts.
