ABOUT

Mid Coast Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service (MCTAAS) is a free service providing information and advice to all tenants, including private and social housing tenants, and home owners in residential communities. Where appropriate, we also provide advocacy and representation to clients with proceedings before the NSW Civil & Administrative Tribunal. We also provide education in tenants' rights, for community workers, tenants, land lease community residents and community groups.

Our services are available to clients in the Local Government Areas of Hastings, Kempsey, Bellingen, Nambucca, Coffs Harbour and the Greater Taree part of Mid-Coast.

You can also email us: enquiries@midcoast.tenants.org.au or fill in our online advice request form

Groups and organisations can complete our community education form to request a community education session from us.
