As you may be aware the Victorian Government has made several announcements recently regarding their Rent Relief Package which is designed to offer some assistance to tenants who may be dealing with financial issues due to the coronavirus.
The package has only passed through the State Parliament this week, so it may take a short period for all of the details to be resolved.
While the announcement is welcome news at this time, the details of how a tenant can apply for the package are unclear and we are seeking clarity on how best to assist you in applying for this assistance.
If you are looking for further information, you can view the most recent updates from Consumer Affairs Victoria on their website by CLICKING ON THIS LINK.
As we all move towards a clearer path forward on these issues, we will all need to understand that this is an entirely new situation for tenants and landlords alike. We will continue to work with you regarding your rental payments and, as we receive further information from Consumer Affairs Victoria or the Victorian Government, we will bring that to you to assist in an application for rental relief it you qualify for this assistance.
We ask that you continue to have patience during this time as we do our best to navigate these new changes.
In the meantime, we thank you for your patience and understanding in this stressful time. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Property Manager for assistance.
