Renters' Guide to COVID-19

This guide covers common questions about renting and Coronavirus COVID-19 in NSW.

The Tenants' Union of NSW is working hard to keep this information as up to date as possible. We'll be regularly adding to and amending the guide as things change. The legal information provided here does not constitute legal advice. Always, seek advice from your local Tenants' Advice and Advocacy Service about your options – tenants.org.au/get-advice.

The Renters' Guide to COVID-19 has been developed to provide legal information about situations that may arise as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It should be read alongside and in addition to the legal information and resources provided on your legal rights and obligations in our general tenancy fact sheets.
