Tenants Victoria teams up with Anika Legal


We are excited to announce a new partnership with Anika Legal.  
 
Anika Legal is a free online service for disadvantaged Victorian renters that specialises in tenants’ rights and tenancy repairs. They believe everyone should have access to justice, regardless of how much money they earn, their disability status, cultural background, gender, or any other barrier to achieving equality before the law.
 
Both Anika Legal and Tenants Victoria share a strong commitment to justice for renters, and we’re confident that this partnership will mean that more Victorians get the help they need when they need it.
