Attn Victorian Landlords- New laws about pets coming into effect in March

Keeping pets is about to become a lot easier for Victorian tenants.


Under the new legislation which comes into effect on March 2, landlords will no longer be able to "unreasonably refuse” tenant requests to keep pets at rental properties.

Under the new laws, landlords wishing to deny their tenants permission to keep pets in the property will have to take the matter to VCAT and argue their case.

For more information on legal reasons that a tenancy application can be denied, read our article here:
