Review of NSW tenancy laws

Family with rental home

What are we doing?

NSW Fair Trading seeks public feedback in a review of the NSW Residential Tenancies Act 2010. A Discussion Paper has been released to guide feedback on the laws and covers topics such as:

  • starting a tenancy
  • rental bonds
  • rent and other charges
  • rights and obligations of landlords and tenants
  • terminating a lease
  • disputes.

This review will look at whether the current laws are working effectively and how to improve them. It will also consider if updates to the laws are needed in light of a changing rental market. Please read the discussion paper on the review before providing feedback.
