Make Renting Fair has developed a survey to help us better understand some of the top priorities of both renters and landlord in relation to these regulations.

What does the Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill mean for renters?

On 7 August 2018, the Victorian Government introduced a bill to Parliament – colloquially known as the ‘RentFair” Bill – that will amend the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA).

While this bill is not perfect, we believe that it is measured and balanced.  The changes outlined in the bill will provide renters with better protections without disadvantaging landlords, enabling them to make safe, healthy and happy lives for themselves and their families.  These reforms are largely sensible and provide an importance balance that current legislation lacks.
