Welcome back to our series on the changes to the Residential Tenancies Act. You may remember, in our last edition I promised to provide you with a run down on the new arrears process. As no further information has been made available, it seems prudent to wait for substantiated information. While we are waiting let’s focus on a couple of other key areas of change.

The Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) in Victoria has been under review since 2015, with amendments to the Act being passed in October 2018.

There are over 138 amendments to the Act, the largest change since its inception. The date for introduction is during 2020 but popular opinion is some changes will be introduced during 2019.
