Renting rights

As an international student, it’s important to know your rights when renting in Victoria.

What to know about renting in Victoria

  • You have the same renting rights as local residents have under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997.
  • You have the right to ask your rental provider or property manager to meet the obligations agreed in your rental agreement (lease) – this will not affect your visa.
