    Submission to Victorian Government

    Submission for Legislative changes to the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 – Part 4A

    MHOA Victoria is actively seeking a review/change to sections of the current legislation which fail to meet the requirements of this housing sector and fail to provide acceptable protection of the rights of Land-Lease homeowners.

    This also includes the formation of a separate Act for Land-Lease villages to enable current/future legislation to seamlessly move forward with the growth in this housing sector to ensure it remains a secure and financially viable option for homeowners.

    You can view the complete Submission under the “Stay Informed” menu of our website.

    MHOA Victoria

    Manufactured Home Owners Association (Vic) Inc, (MHOA Victoria), a not-for-profit organization, was formed in 2022 with the objective to promote, advance, maintain and safeguard the combined and individual interests of manufactured home owners throughout Victoria.

    This encompasses all residents who own their own home yet pay site rent under a Land-Lease agreement. In other words, you own your home but pay your landlord site rent for the land on which it stands. These are often referred to as relocatable homes.

    MHOA Victoria is advocating to the Victorian State Government for changes to the Residential Tenancies Act 1997, Part 4A for better protections for those who have chosen to live in a Manufactured Home Village, the majority of whom are aged pensioners on fixed incomes.
