ABOUT

We can help you with issues such as: lockouts and evictions, terminations, residential tenancy agreements, repairs, rent increases, locks and security, right to privacy, bond disputes, and going to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal. NSATS also provides legal education sessions and lobbies for law reform to help renters. We do not give advice to landlords. Our service is available to renters in the Northern Sydney area.

NSATS is a service of Marrickville Legal Centre.
