ABOUT

COVID-19 service update: Tenant Advocates are working remotely to keep our advice service operating. Our main advice hours are 9.30am - 12.30pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Staff are available, however, from 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday. Please call and leave a message.

Blue Mountains Tenants' Advice and Advocacy Service (BMTAAS) is a free, confidential service that provides advice and information about your rights as a tenant; advocates on your behalf in negotiations with your landlord or real estate agent; represents you in the Tribunal; provides community education to tenants, community organisations and service providers on tenancy issues. Our services are available to renters from Lapstone to Mt Tomah. We help renters living in private rentals, social housing, Aboriginal housing, residential land lease communities, and strata title units. Please note: we require the full name of your landlord before we can provide tenancy advice.

BMTAAS is a program of Elizabeth Evatt Community Legal Centre.
