​New rental laws in effect


Property Management


Changes have been put in place to clarify the rights and responsibilities of renters and rental providers (landlords), in new rental laws that became effective on the 29th of March, 2021.

The new laws cover the complete lifecycle of a rental agreement, which includes before an agreement is signed and after an agreement has ended.

What is changing?

Because at least one in four people rent property in Victoria, these new rules aim to ensure that many of the things that most people expect from a rental property are reflected in the update. 

Rental minimum standards have been introduced with clear rules and accountability for renters and rental providers.

Rental providers have further clarification on what renters are accountable for. Updated obligations can assist with improved understanding to support action and resolution if there is a problem. 

Rental providers and Property Managers can have a more transparent relationship with renters and the confidence their rental property is being maintained.
