ABOUT

Eastern Area Tenants Service (EATS) offers free advice, information and help to renters who are having problems with their landlords or real estate agents. We are funded by NSW Fair Trading and the majority of our funding comes from the interest earned on tenants’ bonds. EATS helps renters in private rental and public housing. We also help boarders and lodgers and people living in share houses.

Our services are available to renters in the Waverley, Woollahra and Randwick council areas in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. We are not able to help landlords or head tenants in a dispute with a sub-tenant or lodger.

Call us on 9386 9147 or use our online request form at eats.org.au.

Over 100 Tenant Advocates from across NSW gathered to learn and connect. The conference is organised by the Tenants' Union of NSW, and this was the largest face-to-face conference we have ever delivered.

Forging Ahead – Tenant Advocates Conference

In October 2021, around 100 Tenant Advocates from across NSW came together online for our annual Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services Conference, under the theme 'Forging Ahead'. It was a great opportunity for Tenant Advocates to hear from each other about the issues faced by different renters, and to learn, discuss and innovate in our practice. A main focus of the Conference this year was the huge challenges faced by renters due to COVID and the ongoing housing crisis, as well as how we can forge ahead and continue to improve.
