SHOULD tenants be able to reduce their
costs by advertising for Airbnb stays?
What about dogs? Are landlords too heavy
And what about giving troublesome tenants
the boot? Should there be more hurdles put in
front of landlords?
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South,
Danny O’Brien, is urging both tenants and land-
lords to provide input into the rules around
renting properties as the State Government
considers a range of changes to the Residential
Tenancies Act including:
• Facilitating fixed term leases of longer than
• Restricting rental increases to once per year
• Banning rental bids
• Introducing minimum health and safety
standards for rental properties
• Improving incentives for landlords to make
repairs quickly, such as restrictions on charg-
ing market rent
• Introducing a mediation service with pow-
ers to make binding decisions
• Requiring notices to vacate to be accompa-
nied by supporting evidence
• Requiring tenants to have landlord consent
before listing a property on Airbnb or similar
• Allowing tenants who are victims of family
violence to challenge notices to vacate if given
as a result of conduct by a perpetrator, and,
• Banning unreasonable ‘no pets’ clauses in
“Some of these proposals would be significant
changes for landlords and rentals and could
also impact the availability of rental housing,”
“It’s important that the people who are going
to be impacted by these changes the most have
their voices heard.”
