Resources for practitioners

Skip listen and sharing tools

Victoria’s renting laws are changing. To make sure industry and community groups are ready by 1 July 2020, we will provide a range of information materials.

We will add resources, including more fact sheets and guides, as they become available. 

To stay informed on the implementation process, you can subscribe to our email updates.

The fact sheets are written in plain English, for everyone affected by changes to renting laws – tenants, landlords, the property industry and community organisations. Practitioners can use the fact sheets to help explain the changes to their clients.

These guides are written for practitioners, especially legal practitioners, who need a detailed description of how the legislation has changed. The guides provide a consistent understanding and interpretation of these changes.

Stakeholder kits

These kits are for tenant advocacy groups, social housing bodies, estate agencies and other related bodies, to raise awareness of long-term leases as a new lease agreement option in the Victorian housing market. Each kit contains a long article, short article, social media posts and a fact sheet.

Presentations

If you require these presentations in an accessible format, please email rentalreforms@justice.vic.gov.au.

Consultation

We still need to consult the public on some details of the changes. A consultation on the Draft Regulations and Regulatory Impact Statement will launch in late 2019. We are also working with industry and community groups on other parts of the reforms.
