Your Responsibility

Changes to the Residential Tenancies Act, effective from 23rd March 2020, significantly affected how regulatory compliance was governed by the NSW Department of Fair Trading. As a landlord, you are responsible to ensure your property meets the necessary standards and are liable for fines of up to $2,200.
