Rent Tracker Research Project

The Tenants' Union Rent Tracker Research Project aims to give tenants, researchers, journalists, and others a clear way to understand rent movements in NSW. Our tools use data published by NSW Fair Trading and are updated monthly or as often as the data is made available.

If you have feedback on Rent Tracker, or need help using it, please contact the Tenants’ Union.

If you are a renter in need of tenancy advice, please contact your local Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service.


Tools for renters

  • Rent Increase Negotiation Kit
    Our Rent Increase Negotiation Kit brings together a range of resources to help tenants negotiate with the landlord or agent about a proposed rent increase. You can put your postcode into the Letter Generator and download a personalised letter and data summary.
