It is important to understand that the urgent and non-urgent repairs are the landlord or agent’s responsibility, but if the tenant caused the damage, the landlord can ask the tenant to arrange and/or pay for repairs and all associated costs. Tenants have a responsibility to continue paying rent when waiting for repairs to be completed. Also it is very important to communicate all information regarding repairs in writing and that all copies of letters, forms, receipts, emails and reports are kept for future reference.

NON URGENT REPAIRS
For non-urgent repairs, the tenants MUST put the maintenance request in writing to the agent outlining what needs to be fixed or looked at. The landlord has 14 days in which to make sure that repairs are carried out. If the landlord does not carry out the repairs within 12 days of receiving the notice, the tenant can send a copy of their written notice to Consumer Affairs Victoria with a letter asking for an inspection and a subsequent report. Tenants MUST continue to pay rent even if the agent has not arranged for the repairs to take place.
