Home Safe Package

The Residential Tenancies Act requires rental providers to ensure rental properties are maintained in good repair. This includes ensuring the safe working and proper maintenance of all gas appliances provided by the Residential Rental Provider.

Under the new legislation a Residential Rental Provider/s who enters into a new residential rental agreement (fixed or periodic) after 29 March 2021 must undertake the following:

  • have gas safety checks conducted every two years by a licensed or registered gas fitter, and
  • keep records of the check and provide details at the request of the Renter, and
  • disclose the date of the last gas safety check, and any outstanding recommendations from the safety check before entering into a Residential Rental Agreement.

As part of the program they will service all your gas appliances in accordance with the service recommendations of Energy Safe Victoria (Victoria’s leading authority for gas safety) to ensure its safe operation. If a change of tenancy does not occur before the 29th March 2023 a Residential Renter Provider must ensure the above has been completed by this date.
