Update licence details - rooming house operators

Skip listen and sharing tools

Notify the BLA of changes

From 15 November 2017, you must use myCAV to update your licence details. The licensed rooming house operator (or responsible person for a body corporate) will need to create their own individual myCAV account to use the system.

To create your myCAV account, you will need a personal email address to verify your identity and sign in to your account.

Create or sign-in to your myCAV account

For more information, view our myCAV for rooming house operators page.

After you are licensed, you must inform the Business Licensing Authority (BLA), in writing using the BLA enquiry form, if:

  • you become aware that you (or any of your officers or managers) meet any of the renewal disqualification criteria in section 18 of the Rooming House Operators Act 2016 while you are licensed, or
  • there are any changes to your licence details, including officers or managers, so that the BLA can determine whether the new officer or manager meets any of the licence disqualification criteria in section 17 of the Rooming House Operators Act 2016.

The BLA will advise Consumer Affairs Victoria of any notifications it receives from a licensee, as well as its findings in relation to new officers or managers.

If you become aware of any changes while the BLA is still determining the outcome of your licence application - that is, before you are licensed - you must inform them immediately in writing using the BLA enquiry form.

It is an offence not to comply with these obligations.
