9 September 2015  |  

VCOSS welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the Victorian Government’s Review of the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (the Review). In this submission VCOSS outlines a range of areas we believe are worthy of consideration, and possibly as subjects of further separate issues papers in Stage 2 of the Review process. These are: security of tenure, housing quality and modification, rental affordability, discrimination and privacy, social housing and marginal tenancies, dispute resolution and tenant services.
