Can a landlord pass to the tenant the costs of complying with the Building Act?

I recently presented a short paper at the Law Institute of Victoria’s Property Law Conference on the topical question of :


“Whether a landlord can recover from a tenant the costs of complying with the Building Act”


The paper is attached for your download ease.

Farewell Landlord and Tenant Act

The Landlord and Tenanct Act 1936 will be repealed effective 1 September 2012: see s.236 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012 and the Victorian Government Gazette, No S291, 28 August 2012. Part 4.2 of ACLFT now governs a landlord’s rights and obligations concerning uncollected goods left on leased premises. While Part V of the Landlord and Tenant Act (control of rents and recovery of possession) has not been re-enacted in other legislation,  Part V has been preserved with respect to existing tenancies governed by Part V[1].

[1] Section 236 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012 and items 36.2 and 36.5 in schedule 6 to that Act.
