Coronavirus (COVID-19) and your rights



A State of Emergency has been declared in Victoria due to the serious risk to public health posed by coronavirus (COVID-19). This page sets out rights and responsibilities in areas we are receiving increased enquiries about. Due to the regularly changing nature of circumstances in Victoria, we will update this information as often as possible.

Housing

Tenants and landlords must comply with the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (the Act). We also encourage landlords and agents to be compassionate with tenants affected by the pandemic. Property sales and owners corporation meetings also need to adapt.

New laws are being introduced into Victoria’s Parliament to help protect residential tenants facing hardship as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
