Residential Tenancies Act Amendments – An Overview
As members are aware, REIV has been working directly with Government on the RTA Amendments from the initial design stages through to development of the Regulations.

However, while successful in delaying the implementation date of the Residential Tenancies Amendment Act 2018 due to COVID-19, the amendments are now to be introduced by 29 March 2021.
Although REIV may not support all the amendments that are now in the Act, we are now focused on ensuring that the Victorian real estate sector is well prepared to effectively implement the Regulations as they come into effect.
Leah Calnan, REIV President and Director of Metro Property Management will provide an overview on:

  • The new regulations
  • What has been included and what’s changed
  • The implications for the industry
  • Compliance requirements of the new Act including gas appliances, 
  • electrical safety checks and smoke alarms, and
  • Preparing your clients and your team for the upcoming changes.
