Response to Residential Tenancies Act Options Paper


The provisions of the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) have wide ranging impacts upon homelessness in Victoria, with the RTA regulating critical and defining aspects of homelessness.

Through this submission we will argue for changes to the RTA that will improve on the fair and reasonable rights of tenants facing personal or financial crises to sustain their housing, and avoid homelessness, and for stronger protections for those experiencing homelessness seeking stable rental accommodation.
