The Victorian Government has announced a package to assist landlords and tenants impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19).
Landlords and tenants are expected to negotiate a rent reduction consistent with the support package announced on 15 April 2020 and in good faith. Guidance about what good faith negotiations entail is available on the Consumer Affairs Victoria website and the Victorian Small Business Commission website.
Landlords who provide tenants impacted by the coronavirus pandemic with rent relief may be eligible for a 25% reduction on the property’s 2020 land tax. Completing this form will enable your landlord to claim a reduction on the property you lease.
