Residential Tenancies Law and Practice, 6th edition, deals with residential tenancy law in New South Wales.

This edition incorporates the new Residential Tenancies Act 2010 which took effect in February 2011. It reviews the changes brought about by the 2010 Act, updates the case annotations and surveys all the recent cases. It is fully updated and revised for solicitors practising in this area of law, real estate agents, property managers, investors, landlords, tenants, and community legal centres.

Written by experienced practitioners in the area, it is an essential aid for research and for attendances at the Tribunal. It is particularly for those who wish to obtain a more detailed understanding of residential tenancy law beyond that contained in good consumer manuals such as the Tenants’ Rights Manual.

It contains:

The full text of the relevant residential tenancy legislation in NSW. Each statutory provision is annotated with descriptions of the cases that have been decided in relation to that provision.

Commentary to assist readers in understanding how proceedings of the Tribunal are conducted.

Detailed lists of cases covering the amounts of compensation awarded by the Tribunal and courts for various breaches of the residential tenancy agreement by parties to the agreement.

A list of cases outlining the circumstances the Tribunal finds relevant in considering whether to evict tenants

Anyone working or interested in the field of residential tenancy law in New South Wales will find this volume an essential addition to their library.
