  • Proposed changes to Residential Tenancies Act

    The Andrews Government this week announced changes to the Victorian Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (Vic) (“Act”)aimed at giving tenants greater powers, information and security in relation to residential renting arrangements.  The changes come as a result of the Government’s review of the Act.

    Some of the proposed changes include:

  • Wills laws and same sex marriage

    The laws relating to Wills treat same sex couples the same as unmarried heterosexual couples, who are called ‘domestic partners’ in the legislation.
