SUPRA’s casework team recently made a submission to the NSW government’s inquiry: Improving NSW Rental Laws.

The inquiry specifically asked for submissions regarding:

  • reasons a landlord can terminate a lease – removing ‘no grounds’ evictions
  • how to make it easier for renters to keep pets
  • protecting personal information held by real estate agents
  • making it easier to transfer rental bonds from one property to another
  • other ways to make the system fairer.

In our submission, we advocated for:

  • an end to no-fault termination for all types of tenancies
  • more regulation to protect tenants from rent hikes
  • more protections for tenants with pets.
