Information on Victoria’s new rental rules

Victoria’s new rental laws come into effect on 29 March 2021

The changes to the law clarify the rights and responsibilities of renters and rental providers.

There are over 130 reforms contained within the Residential Tenancies Regulations 2021, which apply to all types of tenancies, private rentals, caravan and residential parks, and rooming houses.

Gas and electrical safety obligations

Under the new laws rental providers (previously referred to as landlords) have certain responsibilities for gas and electrical safety.

Rental providers must undertake gas and electricity safety checks every two years.

To support our stakeholders, ESV has developed new safety checklists to help rental providers comply with their obligations.
