This webinar covers the termination process for both private tenants and social housing tenants.
Either the tenant or the landlord can terminate the tenancy agreement. We will be explore the circumstances, notice periods and process required for either party to terminate the agreement. We will explain at what stage of the process and in what circumstance a tenant can be removed or locked out of the property.
We will also briefly refer to what a tenant can do, if the landlord acts outside of the limitations of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 in relation to termination and locking a tenant out.
This will be practical information in plain language, designed to demystify the termination process with regards to the tenants’ rights and obligations.
The webinar will be valuable to all community workers, advocates and volunteers, in services such as financial counselling, housing services, universities and community legal centres. This webinar will be applicable to NSW only.
Presenter: Alison Mackey, Tenants' Advocate at RLC's Inner Sydney Tenants Advice & Advocacy Service
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT. A 14-year-old Indigenous boy who was hospitalised with head injuries after an encounter with NSW Police officers in September is fighting to have an upcoming hearing examining the officers’ conduct open to the public.
The NSW Government’s ‘law and order’ response to the pandemic created significant fines debt and damaged community-police relations in some of the most disadvantaged parts of the state, according to a new UNSW Law School report.
