RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES AMENDMENT REGULATIONS 2021 On the 29th of March 2021, the Victorian Government legislated a substantial number of changes to the Residential Tenancies Act. As a Residential Rental Provider (Landlord) it is important that you are aware of what this means for you and what your responsibilities are moving forward to ensure your property compliant with relevant legislation.

For all properties leased after 29th March 2021, there are now two documents that must be completed and three mandatory safety checks which need to be carried out. These include the following:

Disclosure Statement Minimum Standards Checklist Gas Safety Check Electrical Safety Check Smoke Alarm Safety Check All of the safety checks must be completed by a qualified trades person.

The Disclosure Statement and Minimum Standards Checklist must be completed prior to advertising and provided to any new renter that is approved for the property prior to them signing the lease agreement.

Our office has engaged third party licensed/registered gasfitters and licensed/registered electricians to complete these checks in accordance with all applicable standards, codes, and legislation.
