A rental agent and a rent recovery specialist will provide advice on where to apply to the Department of Housing and Community Services to recover rent from the government and assess a tenant’s income.
If the property is a rental, the rental recovery agent will be able to assess whether the property qualifies as a rental.
“In general, rent recovery is a voluntary process that you can apply for,” said Rent Recovery’s director of marketing, Matthew Brown.
“You can apply online for rent recovery.
We’ll also provide you with a form you can fill in to provide information on the process.”
If the rental is a property that is not a rental and the landlord charges you rent, we will work with the landlord to recover that money and make sure they don’t charge more rent in the future.
“He said tenants could apply for a rent reduction or rent arrears reduction through the Rent Recovery Service.”
We don’t want the tenant to be in a position where they’ve been evicted from their property,” he said.”
That’s why we are so keen to get this right.”‘
We’ve been told to stop looking for the landlord’A rent recovery company in Melbourne said it had been told by the Department that landlords were “not looking for tenants to come in” because of the current downturn.”
Our team has been told that they should stop looking at people to come into the property and that is something that is causing a lot of distress,” said Richard Smith, director of Rent Recovery.”
It is completely untrue that they are looking for people to enter.
“Mr Smith said the company was working with the Department to determine how it could assist tenants and “take steps to make sure that they do not have to wait until the next rental period to apply”.”
We are working to provide rent recovery assistance to those that need it and we’re looking to find a way to ensure that this doesn’t happen again,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.”
As it is right now, it is completely inappropriate for anyone to come to a rental property without being assessed and paid for the rental.
“In the meantime, Mr Smith said there was an ongoing rental recovery process in Melbourne.’
They’re being asked to leave”The rental agency’s executive director, Daniel Brown, said the city was “being asked to stop being a landlord” because there was “a lot of panic”.”
I think the City is being asked by people to stop seeking landlords for their properties,” he added.”
People are not being given any time to look for landlords.
They’re being told that if they go to the local council, that they’re being kicked out.
“The City of Melbourne’s spokesperson for housing, David Boulton, said he was aware of the problems and was in contact with tenants to help.”
This is just one example of the pressures facing renters in our community, which is making it harder to rent in many parts of Melbourne,” he wrote in a statement.”
There is a significant amount of rental vacancy and some properties are already under rent recovery.
“A spokesperson for the Department for Housing and Communities said it was working closely with the City of Victoria on the rent recovery process.
He said: “We have asked the Department and Rent Recovery to provide advice to help tenants and provide more details of the process to help ensure that they get the most out of it.”
