A rental relief package was announced by the Victorian Government on 15 April 2020. The package included a temporary ban on evictions (except in some circumstances), rent increases, a new process to help tenants negotiate rent reductions and some financial assistance. 

Tell us about your COVID-19 renting experience (good or bad) so we can let others know and help to improve the scheme. Please e-mail the Commissioner (External link)about your experiences with your landlord/agent, the rent reduction and mediation process or the rent relief grant.
