New protections for renters announced

The NSW Government has just announced 60 day eviction moratorium for residential and retail tenants. Well done to every one who joined the call for this important protection. Eligible COVID-impacted residential tenants who cannot meet their rent payments will be protected from eviction during the moratorium period commencing from 14 July and finishing at the end of 11 September 2021.

A landlord or agent may continue to seek a termination in other circumstances including: sale of premises, illegal use of premises, damage to property, hardship, or end of fixed term agreement. More information is available from Fair Trading NSW.
