Compensation for non-economic loss
|Subtitle||Submissions regarding exemption from Civil Liability and Residential Parks Acts|
Tenants NSW became aware of the decision of the NSW Court of Appeal in Insight Vacations Pty Ltd v Young that proceedings relating to 'distress and disappointment' are subject to the Civil Liability Act 2002, and formed the view that this may severely limit tenants' proceedings for compensation.
Tenants NSW made submissions to the Minister for Fair Trading and the Attorney General seeking an exemption from the Civil Liability Act 2002 for proceedings under the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 and the Residential Parks Act 1998.
