Northern Sydney Area Tenants’ Service (NSATS) is a non-government organisation funded by NSW Fair Trading. We believe that tenants have a right to legal information, advice, advocacy and representation which is accessible and relevant to their lives. Our goal is to provide free and accessible legal and related services, which are responsive to the needs of those most disadvantaged and which promote just and lasting solutions to legal and social issues in our community.

Our services are available to renters in the Northern Sydney area. Please note, we do not advise landlords.

NSATS also provides legal education sessions and lobbies for law reform to help tenants. We also run a drop-in face-to-face outreach service at Manly Community Centre every fortnight, Tuesdays 10am – 12pm.

NSATS is a service of Marrickville Legal Centre.


Make Renting Fair gains momentum

Make Renting Fair campaigners and supporters in Redfern
Redfern tenants and community show their support for Make Renting Fair
In NSW current tenancy legislation allows landlords in the private market to end a tenancy without having to give a reason. This means renters are often scared to enforce their rights because they know they can get kicked out for things like asking for repairs or challenging an excessive rent increase. Make Renting Fair is a community campaign calling for law reform to end these unfair evictions. Support for the Make Renting Fair campaign continues to grow.
