Inside Property Management - Pets in Rental Properties


Pets in Rental Properties – Working with the new legislation 

As part of the new rental reforms, tenants will be able to keep a pet, after seeking permission from their landlord, in rental properties in 2020.

This session will explore:

  • Tips & advice in communicating the new regulations with landlords
  • Landlord & Tenants – rights, obligations and responsibilities
  • How to handle current leases and requests from tenants
  • Who is excluded from the new reform, and
  • The VCAT process for landlords.

REIV have worked alongside the Andrews’ Government to advocate and provide a voice for landlords throughout the Residential Tenancies Act Reforms.

 Leah Calnan, REIV President and Director of Metro Property Management, has been a driving force in these advocacy efforts. This session, part of the Inside Property Management in 2020 series, allows Property Managers, Directors and OIEC’s to hear directly from Leah on the new reform, how it will be implemented and how as a sector we can evolve to cater for the change.

This face-to-face event is also offered as a webinar. Note ticket price is the same for both event and webinar attendees. Please select your preference in the registration options below.
