This can be used as evidence of access to other state aid such as rent relief or property tax relief.

Owners and tenants can use our Form 1 – Rental Agreement (Word, 1.5MB). Second, the agreement contains the terms of the lease. This includes rent, maintenance and the rights and obligations of tenants and landlords. Before signing the rental agreement, the broker or lessor must provide the tenant with an unsigned copy of the contract for the first re-subscription. If both parties have signed, the tenant should receive a signed copy of the rental agreement within 14 days.
It is important to know that tenants and landlords can still get support from the Victoria Consumer Affairs and the Victoria Dispute Centre to help them get a new deal.

If you are renting residential properties in Victoria, the legal housing lease must be entered into. Agree to the rent reduction instead of a tenant who defers payment of the current amount to a later date. If the rent is deferred, tenants may, at the end of the contract, be in debt that they cannot repay. Extended rent reduction contracts should be registered with Victoria consumer companies. If the tenant and lessor fail to reach an agreement as part of the mediation process, the Chief Dispute Resolution Officer for residential rents may adopt a binding dispute resolution decision. The order may be this: this may seem like an intimidating move, but it is important not to stick them – paying without rent is a breach of the lease. Rent reductions can be deferred to the date the application is made. If a dispute settlement order expires and tenants continue to experience financial difficulties, tenants should contact their landlord or property manager to apply for a new tenancy agreement.
A rental agreement or rent reduction agreement must be submitted to Consumer Affairs Victoria before the tenant and lessor have access to the rent reduction grant. This is a one-time payment of $3,000 for tenants who are experiencing financial difficulties due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). The grant is paid directly to the landlord on behalf of the tenant.
