ABOUT

Central Coast Tenants’ Advice and Advocacy Service (CCTAAS) is a free service for Central Coast tenants. We have operated for over 15 years, providing telephone and face-to-face advice, advocacy, and community legal education. We are funded through grants allocated to the Tenants Advice and Advocacy Program, overseen by NSW Fair Trading. Funds are raised from interest received on tenants rental bonds lodged with the Rental Bond Board.

Our services are available to renters in the Central Coast Local Government Area. We also assist tenants in the Lake Macquarie Local Government Area where the postcode is the same as Wyong. The region extends from Gwandalan in the north, down the coast to the Hawkesbury River and its islands in the south, and west to Bucketty and beyond Mangrove Creek. Please note that we do not assist landlords.

We can arrange home visits in special circumstances where tenants are unable to access our service.

CCTAAS is a self incorporated not for profit entity managed by a volunteer Management Committee.

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.
