Rental Minimum Standards Inspection

From the 29th of March 2021, the Victorian Government enforced minimum rental standards for all rental properties in an effort to create a fairer, safer system for all Victorians.

This means that all Residential Rental Providers (RRPs) must make sure a property meets the minimum standards on or before the day a renter moves in.

What are the minimum rental standards?

The standards follow themes of health, safety, amenity, and energy affordability.

The areas of assessment include:

  • Structural soundness
  • Locks
  • Bins
  • Toilets
  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchen
  • Laundry
  • Ventilation
  • Mould/dampness
  • Windows and window coverings
  • Heating
  • Lighting

As well as the Government mandated Minimum Rental Standards Inspection which includes a written report including corresponding photos, we can also carry out a full Rental Inspection, which includes the Minimum Rental Standards as well as a full internal and external inspection listing defects in all the rooms and hallways, external paths, driveways, gutters, foundation and cladding structural damage etc.

This is a great inspection that should be carried out every three years to check on the condition and structural condition of your investment.
