Skip listen and sharing tools

This page is about changes to Victoria's renting laws that have not happened yet. They will be in place from July 2020.

For information on current laws, view our Renting section.

A rental provider (landlord) may give a notice to vacate if the renter or anyone living at the rental property has seriously threatened or intimidated the rental provider or their agent, or a contractor or employee of the rental provider or agent.

They must give at least 14 days’ notice to vacate.

This reform also applies to rooming houses, caravan parks and residential parks.
