Residential Tenancies Authority webinar: DFV provisions while renting

Thursday 12 May 2022 10.00 am

Residential Tenancies Authority

As part of Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month, the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) is committed to raising awareness of the domestic and family violence (DFV) provisions in the Housing Legislation Amendment Act 2021. These provisions came into effect on 20 October 2021 and allow tenants experiencing DFV to either end their interest in a tenancy quickly or remain in the rental property safely (if they choose to do so). In this webinar, we’ll discuss: * the new DFV provisions * processes for ending a tenancy due to DFV * processes for any remaining tenants * how DFV victims can remain in a rental property, should they choose to do so * where tenants affected by DFV can get assistance * possible DFV scenarios while renting, and how these should be approached. There will also be an opportunity for participants to ask questions at the end of the webinar. Webinar details: Date: Thursday 12 May 2022 Time: 10-10.30am Location: Online via Zoom (access available via web browser) Register: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ghi7tqetSUy5P-LXC52IVg Interested in more?
