Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

More Victorians are renting than ever before and for longer.  As a part of its plan for fairer, safer housing, the Victorian Government has undertaken a comprehensive review of the Residential Tenancies Act to ensure that it meets the needs of the current and future rental market.

There will be many changes such as:

·         Landlord must give a reason to end a tenancy.

·         Provision for long term leases, up to five years.

·         Landlord blacklist

·         Allowing pets in properties

·         Cracking down on rental bidding

The Victorian Council of Social Service describes it as a win for the 1.5 million Victorians who rent their homes.  The legislation however, isn’t without its critics, including the Real Estate Institute of Victoria.
