Residential tenancy forms 

On 29 April 2016 new swimming pool laws came into effect. Further information about the new laws is available from the Swimming pools page on the NSW Fair Trading website.

On 30 May 2016, changes to tenancy laws mean it is now a material fact, that is, an issue that must be disclosed prior to entering into any agreement, if a property is listed on the register of residential properties that contain or have contained loose-fill asbestos insulation. From 30 October 2016, the standard tenancy agreement also includes a requirement to notify tenants if the premises they want to lease is on the Loose-fill Asbestos Insulation register, or if the premises is added to the register during the tenancy.
