Have your say on the residential tenancies review

8 September 2015
Every five years, the NSW Government is required to conduct a review of the residential tenancies law. The last review was completed ahead of the commencement of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 and the Residential Tenancies Regulation 2010, which means the next review is imminent.

While the government has yet to announce the review, in anticipation the REINSW Property Management Chapter Committee has formed a dedicated sub-committee to identify those areas in the current legislation requiring reform.

The sub-committee would like to hear from members about the aspects of the legislation you believe need to be addressed as part of the review.

Please email before 25 September 2015, detailing the parts of the legislation you believe require change and why.

The sub-committee will assess all input and consider it as part of their overall review of the legislation.

Once the sub-committee has completed their assessment, a report will be provided to REINSW to form the basis of any future submission to government.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of the residential tenancies legislation ahead of providing your feedback, please contact the REINSW Helpline by calling (02) 9264 2343 (select option 4) or emailing
