Renters Rights Rundown: Victoria’s new renting rules

This webinar is part of the Advocacy Sector Conversations forum series.

More than 130 changes to Victoria’s renting rules came into effect on 29 March 2021. They clarify the rights and responsibilities of both renters and landlords (‘rental providers’), from before signing a rental agreement until after the lease expires. The new rules set minimum standards for rental properties, and authorise renters to make simple changes around the home without permission. The changes apply to all types of tenancies, including private rentals, caravans, residential parks, rooming houses and specialist disability accommodation.

Deborah Fewster is Advocacy and Engagement Manager at VCOSS and she will be joined by James Latham from Department of Justice and Community Safety to provide an overview of the changes and how advocates can support renters to navigate the new system.
