This workshop asks participants to take a holistic view of a tenancy; it addresses the considerations required to sustain a tenancy and avoid VCAT, including the decision-making processes prior to a legal process commencing. We then address the considerations once a legal process commences and look at how to complete common tenancy forms including breach notices, notices to vacate and, VCAT applications. In this course we will provide you with a framework to limit common notice errors and avoid the undue distress to renters (and yourself) that can result from being taken through a legal process more times than necessary.

This workshop will cover:

  • An overview of strategies to sustain tenancies and avoid VCAT – including referral pathways
  • Understanding the legal process
  • Evidence requirements prior commencing a legal process
  • Accurately completing legal forms to support VCAT process
  • Proper service of notices

It would be suitable for:

  • Tenancy workers
  • Managers of community housing tenancy workers

*Please note: This workshop does not cover the VCAT process; this is covered in the “Preparing & Presenting at VCAT” course available via the CHIA Vic website.



The course is facilitated by Lisa May, our in-house trainer at CHIA Vic. Lisa has 20 years experience in the property industry including 7 years in the Community Housing sector in both front line and coordination roles. Lisa also creates leading practice resources for front line workers and finds that being active in the sector gives her insight into the challenges that workers face every day in the dynamic social and community housing landscape, which ensures that training content is relatable and relevant.
