Renting can be tricky to navigate, especially if you are new to renting in New South Wales or haven’t rented for a while.

The Tenants’ Union of NSW is presenting a kit to bridge the gap between tenancy law and everyday renting challenges. The kit is intended for young people, international students, migrants, refugees and those who haven’t rented in a while. But experienced renters may find it a good refresher too! The kit helps renters get started, avoid common pitfalls, and resolve issues that commonly come up during a tenancy. Community workers will find the kit useful to help clients navigate the world of renting.

The Kit covers the key stages of renting – starting a tenancy, dealing with problems that may arise, and ending a tenancy. The aim throughout is to explain renting in plain language. There are lots of real-world scenarios, practical suggestions, and links to reliable sources of additional information.

The kit is divided into three main sections:

  1. Finding a rental property and signing a lease
  2. Dealing with problems during a tenancy
  3. The end of a tenancy
