New domestic violence provisions start today

Published on 28/02/2019

Changes to domestic violence provisions in the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 have now come into effect. 

The changes, passed by NSW Parliament in November last year, improve the protections for tenants experiencing domestic violence (DV).

The Tenants' Union has prepared resources to help renters understand their rights under the new provisions.

There are also resources available from Women's Legal Service NSW & NSW Fair Trading.
