Vic housing policy overhaul to include Airbnb tax and 90-day rental eviction notice

Victoria is preparing to overhaul its housing policy, including becoming the first Australian state to introduce an Airbnb tax.

Premier Daniel Andrews’ planned changes are designed to improve affordability and increase supply, including the public housing sector.

A 7.5 per cent levy has been discussed for short-term rentals such as Airbnb locations.

Meanwhile, renters would gain a 90-day eviction notice requirement from landholders.

The Andrews government is expected to spend the coming days politically selling the proposed document.
