Act for the House, Not the Tenant
The purpose of the ‘Act for the House, not the Tenant’ Project is to target rental properties which are in a state of disrepair in order to encourage tenants to take enforcement action against the landlord.
The Project plans to approach tenants in around 20 properties, previously identified as substandard, over an 18 month period.
Footscray CLC would offer to assist the tenant in enforcing the repairs procedures in the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (Vic), and applying for compensation as appropriate.
The Project ultimately aims to document the outcome of repeated enforcement action against ‘repeat offender’ landlords.
