The Victorian Property Fund (VPF) is a trust fund established under the Estate Agents Act 1980 and administered by Consumer Affairs Victoria. Income for the VPF comes from:
- licence fees paid by estate agents and conveyancers
- any fines and penalties payable under the Estate Agents Act 1980 and Conveyancers Act 2006
- interest on estate agents' and conveyancers' trust accounts
- investment income.
We administer grants and compensation claims from the VPF.
The VPF provides compensation for individuals and corporations when an estate agent, conveyancer or their respective representative has misused or misappropriated trust money or property in the course of their work.
