The Victorian Government introduced mandatory electrical safety checks in March 2021, under the Residential Tenancy Regulations 2021. Electrical safety checks are required for all tenancy buildings to be completed at a minimum of every 2 years. The Regulations Act defines an electrical safety check as ‘a check of all electrical installations, fixtures, and fittings carried out in accordance with section 4 of AS/NZS 3019 “Electrical installations- Periodic verification”, as published or amended from time to time. Victoria’s rental laws clarify the rights and responsibilities of renters and rental providers prior to rental agreement contracts and after the agreement ends. These changes to the law apply to all types of tenancies, private rentals, caravan and residential parks, and rooming houses.
