Rooming & Residential Properties
Renters must have written consent to have a pet in the property. If the rental provider refuses then the renter can apply for a VCAT order on the basis that the rental provider is unreasonable.
A renter can apply for a VCAT order if the agreement is not in writing. As a best practice, the lease is signed as soon as the renter pays rent.
The rental provider or agent must provide another spare set of keys to the renter.
Terminology changes. Landlords are now referred as "Rental Providers". Tenants are now called “Renters”.
Rental increases are allowed once every 12 months.
