A State of Emergency has been declared in Victoria due to the serious risk to public health posed by coronavirus (COVID-19). The situation is frequently changing and Victorians understandably have many questions. In response to increased enquiries, Consumer Affairs Victoria has compiled information about how the pandemic affects areas we regulate.
A new page at consumer.vic.gov.au/coronavirusandrights covers:
- renters in crisis
- inspections and auctions
- owners corporation annual general meetings
- products and services
- price gouging and resellers
- event cancellations and refunds
- sports memberships
- scams relating to coronavirus (COVID-19).
Due to the regularly changing nature of circumstances in Victoria, we will update this page as often as possible.
