Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services

Tenant Advocates

Tenant Advocates and Tenants' Union staff at a meeting of the Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services network.

This website is produced by the Tenants’ Union of NSW in collaboration with the network of Tenants' Advice and Advocacy Services (TAASs).

There are 15 generalist TAASs, 4 specialist TAASs for Aboriginal tenants, and a specialist resourcing body for the Aboriginal TAASs. Each is run by a local non-government organisation. They are funded by NSW Fair Trading under the Tenants Advice and Advocacy Program (TAAP), which uses money from the Rental Bond Board Interest Account and the Property Services Statutory Interest Account. 

The Tenants' Union of NSW is the main resourcing body for the network of TAASs in NSW.

The TAASs provide free information, advice and advocacy to renters in their local areas. TAASs assist renters in private rental housing, social housing tenants, boarders and lodgers, and land lease community residents. The Network brings together the skills and expertise of a group of highly skilled Tenant Advocates who work to ensure quality professional advice and advocacy is available to all renters in NSW.

The network responds to approximately 30,000 requests annually for tenancy advice and provides ongoing assistance to approximately 10,000 tenants annually.
