Victoria made significant changes to renting laws in 2021. The requirement for a rented property to meet minimum standards was introduced in the new laws. Under the new Residential Tenancy legislation, all properties are required to have regular safety checks to ensure compliance. Essentially, Smoke Alarm testing is mandatory every 12 months with Gas Safety, Carbon Monoxide and Electrical Safety Service checks to be completed every 2 years.

Pets in rental properties
You ask, we answer
The maximum bond is 1 month’s rent (unless the rent is more than $900 per week). In some cases, the rental provider may ask the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) to increase this limit.
If you want to keep a pet at the rental property, you must seek the rental provider’s (landlord’s) consent. Use the ‘Pet request’ form.
You can make certain modifications to the property without the rental provider’s consent. For example:
- – installing picture hooks or shelf brackets
- – adding child safety gates or locks.
See the full list at Renters making changes to the property.
To make other modifications, you will need written consent from the rental provider. For some types of modification, they must not unreasonably refuse consent.
