  1. Tenancy Legislation Updates

Recent updates to tenancy laws in Victoria have introduced several changes that impact both landlords and tenants. These include new rights and obligations regarding rent increases, notice periods, and modifications to rental properties. We continuously monitor these changes to ensure you’re fully compliant.

  1. Safety Regulations

New safety regulations have been introduced, requiring regular checks and maintenance for gas, electrical, and smoke alarm systems. These regulations are designed to enhance tenant safety and reduce the risk of accidents. Our team ensures that your property meets all safety standards, conducting timely inspections and coordinating necessary maintenance.

  1. Rent Control Measures

Changes in rent control measures aim to balance the interests of landlords and tenants by limiting rent increases and providing guidelines for fair rental practices. We help you navigate these measures, ensuring your rental rates comply with the law while maximizing your returns.

  1. Dispute Resolution Mechanisms

Recent reforms have improved dispute resolution mechanisms, making it easier for landlords and tenants to resolve conflicts without lengthy legal processes. We assist in mediating disputes and representing your interests, ensuring that any issues are resolved swiftly and fairly.
