Understand the RTAA and the Regulations

Over 120 new rental tenancy standards came into effect on 29 March 2021. The changes to the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) in Victoria are significant, and it’s critical that all property professionals and owners get across them. While many of the reforms are reasonable, and indeed are requirements, it’s the volume of change occurring at once that could be overwhelming.

We are here to assist Victorian real estate professionals understand and implement the changes resulting from the Residential Tenancies Amendment Act and the 2021 Regulations.

The REIV worked with Government on the RTA Amendments from the initial design stages through to development of the Regulations. Although we may not support all the amendments that are now in the Act, we are focused on ensuring that the Victorian real estate sector has access to the tools and information required to effectively implement the Regulations. Key information has been consolidated on this page.

Please do not hesitate to contact us on [email protected] or call 03 9205 6666.

  • The REIV has prepared a comprehensive online reference book that has been reviewed and supported by the Victorian Government.

    The book details the reforms and relevant modules in the legislation and provides interpretation and explanation to assist in implementing the changes.

    The resource is now being funded by the Victorian Property Fund with approval from the Minister of Consumer Affairs and can now be accessed by all Victorians at no cost.
