If you are finding it difficult to pay your rent, or negotiate a rent reduction with your landlord or agent, the good news is on the 20th August 2020 the Victorian Government extended the moratorium to assist Victorian renters in need. 

The moratorium will apply to evictions, the suspension of rental increases, and if you have not been able to negotiate a rent reduction with your landlord or agent, the services of the dispute resolution services are continuing.
