MLC offers two tenancy services that provide free, confidential legal information, advice and advocacy to renters living in social and private residential housing.
Inner West Tenants’ Advice & Advocacy Service (IWTAAS) helps renters living within Inner West Sydney. Northern Sydney Area Tenants’ Service (NSATS) helps renters living from North Sydney to Ryde and Pittwater. Both services provide advice to renters on their rights and responsibilities. We do not give advice to landlords.
We can advise on
- Getting repairs done
- What you should do if you are given a notice of termination
- Dealing with FACS Housing or Community Housing Providers
- Priority Housing Appeals
- Going to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal including appealing a decision of the Tribunal
