Victoria has passed temporary regulation to help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on tenants and landlords. The temporary regulations put a moratorium on evictions, facilitate rent relief for eligible tenants, suspend rental increases, and have set up a new and free dispute resolution process. The temporary regulations also change how a tenant or landlord may end a tenancy during the six-month moratorium period.
