Visit our COVID-19 page for information and advice on the assistance available for NSW residents and businesses

The NSW government has extended the measures it introduced in 2020 to assist tenants impacted by COVID-19, to 26 March 2021.

Those measures include, but are not limited to:

  • restrictions on when landlords can evict tenants due to rental arrears
  • extended notice periods for certain other lease termination reasons
  • allowing tenants to terminate a tenancy agreement
  • protection from being added to tenancy databases (or ‘blacklists’) for breaches of agreements.

If you're not impacted by COVID-19 you're expected to honour your existing tenancy agreements, including paying all rent and charges in full.
