New translated rent relief advice for small business tenants and landlords
Small business tenants and landlords can now access the Victorian Small Business Commission’s latest rent relief advice in English, Simplified Chinese, Arabic and Vietnamese.
These new fact sheets explain the support we’re providing under the Victorian Government’s Commercial Tenancy Relief Scheme (the Scheme), which aims to ease financial hardship faced by tenants and landlords as a result of the pandemic.
Our fact sheets include:
- what tenants need to do as soon as possible to access rent relief under the Scheme, now that it’s been changed and extended until the end of the year
- access to a letter that tenants can use to ask for rent relief (they just need to fill in the highlighted parts)
- a scenario showing what rent relief negotiations can look like.
Our team can talk with tenants and landlords early on, and bring them together with an experienced mediator and interpreter to help resolve their dispute at no cost.
If you would like to speak with us in your language, call us through the Translating and Interpreting Service.
