Bethany Community Support’s Tenancy Assistance and Advocacy Program (TAAP) can help with a wide range of issues that may be facing tenants, including:
- rental increases
- notices to vacate
- bond refunds
- goods left behind
- VCAT hearings
- ending a lease
- breaches of the landlord’s duties
The TAAP program services tenants who live in a private rental, either through a real estate agent or directly with the landlord. If tenants living in private rental accommodation are experiencing financial disadvantage and/or family violence then they are eligible for ongoing assistance and advocacy.
Please note that the program does not cover disputes between tenants.
The TAAP program services Warrnambool and surrounds, Portland , Hamilton and the Wimmera.
The program can assist at VCAT Hearings listed at Warrnambool, Portland, Hamilton and Horsham if you meet the eligibility criteria.
This is a free service.
Funding for the Tenancy Assistance and Advocacy Program is provided by the Victorian Government via Consumer Affairs Victoria.
