This page is about changes to Victoria's renting laws that have not happened yet. They will be in place by 1 January 2021.
For information on current laws, view our Renting section.
The rental provider (landlord) must provide a free set of keys or another security device (for example, to access an apartment building’s car park) to each renter who signed the rental agreement.
If both a key and a security device are required to enable the renter to access the property, the rental provider must provide both for free for each renter.
If a renter requests an additional key or security device, the rental provider can charge a reasonable fee.
