About the RTBA

The RTBA holds all Victorian residential tenancy bonds in trust; these include those for rented premises, long-term caravans, rooming houses, and caravan sites under site agreements. When a rental agreement ends, property managers/landlords and tenants/residents have equal say in how the bond should be repaid. The RTBA releases the money as agreed. 

Interest on rental bonds goes towards running:

  • the RTBA
  • VCAT's Residential Tenancies List and,
  • Consumer Affairs Victoria residential tenancies activities.
