Residential Tenancies Act 2010 and Regulation
|Subtitle||Work around new tenancy legislation in NSW|
The Residential Tenancies Act 2010 passed in June 2010 and commenced in January 2011. It reflects a number of Tenants NSW's key law reform priorities, including proper regulation of databases, clearer rights for share-house occupants, and options for victims of domestic violence to end their tenancy or exclude the violent person from the rented premises.
Tenants NSW made a submission on the draft Residential Tenancies Regulation 2010, and some of our recommendations were reflected in the final Regulation.
Since the commencement of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010, we have consulted closely with Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services and kept a log of technical problems and larger policies issues identified.
