The Commissioner's role:

Rental reform is central to the role of the Commissioner. The primary purpose of the Commissioner is to work with stakeholders to identify systemic issues and make recommendations to government.

Rental reform is about changing the laws and practices that make everyday life difficult for renters. The Commissioner has committed to champion the rights of Victorian renters and to give them a voice in seeking changes to renting laws.

The Commissioner’s four-year Strategic Work Plan sets out some three core outcomes that the Commissioner will work on:

Outcome 1: Renters’ rights are protected and strengthened  (External link)

Outcome 2: Renters understand their rights  (External link)

Outcome 3: Renters exercise their rights  (External link)

Each outcome has practical strategies designed to improve the experience and confidence of renters.
