Consumer Affairs Victoria can issue an infringement notice if they identify breaches of certain sections of the Residential Tenancies Act 1997.
An infringement notice allows
you to pay a fine for these offences without an admission of guilt, rather than
going to court.
The fine is less than the
maximum penalty a court can impose if it found you guilty.
For full details of your legal
obligations, refer to the Residential
Tenancies Act 1997.
The value of a penalty unit is
$165.22 for financial year 2019-20.
This amount will change at the start of
each financial year. For more information, visit the Indexation
of fees and penalties page on the Department of Treasury and Finance website.
