More Victorians are renting, for different reasons and for longer periods of time.
The Victorian Government has established the Commissioner for Residential Tenancies to be a strong champion for renters' rights.
Renters' Advisory Group
The Commissioner for Residential Tenancies is looking for youth representation on the Renters’ Advisory Group.
Expressions of interest close at 5.00 pm on Friday 28 June 2019.
This group will advise the Commissioner about their experiences of renting in Victoria and the issues and challenges they face.
Members of the group will be expected to have a knowledge of the current and emerging issues affecting Victorian renters. They should be able to listen and consider others’ perspectives and confidently raise and discuss the issues affecting them and other renters.
For more information about the Renter's Advisory Group, and how to apply, visit the Commissioner for Residential Tenancies website.

The Commissioner does not get involved in resolving disputes, providing legal advice, representing renters at court or tribunal hearings or dealing with complaints about government services. Other agencies and support services deal with these matters. Read more about getting help with your rental issue.
