What the Act means for Tenants
- Most residential tenancies in NSW are covered by the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 (‘the Act’)
- The Act and the regulations set out a standard residential tenancy agreement that gives rights and obligations to landlords and tenants.
- The Act gives the Consumer, Trader and Tenancy Tribunal (CTTT) power to hear and settle disputes about residential tenancies, including bond disputes.
