FAQs on Tenancy Lawyers

A tenancy agreement is a contract between a tenant and a landlord. It sets out the rights and obligations of both parties and includes details like rent, lease duration, and rules for the property.
The NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal is a dispute resolution body. It hears and determines disputes related to residential tenancies, such as those involving rental arrears, property damage, or termination of leases.
Common disputes include disagreements over rent increases, property damage, eviction, lease terms, and the return of rental bond.
If you receive a breach notice, it’s important to get legal advice. Our tenancy lawyers can help you understand the notice, advise on your rights and options, and assist in resolving the matter.
If you can’t make rental payments, contact your landlord or property manager as soon as possible. If you can’t reach an agreement, get legal advice. Our lawyers can help you understand your options, which might include applying to the tribunal for a rental reduction or payment plan.
The length of a tribunal hearing depends on the complexity of the case. Simple matters might be resolved in an hour or two, while more complex disputes can take several hours or may require multiple hearing dates.
If a landlord uses the property for an illegal purpose, tenants may have grounds to terminate the lease or seek compensation. If you suspect your landlord is using the property illegally, seek legal advice immediately.
‘Quiet enjoyment’ is a tenant’s right to use and enjoy the rented premises without disturbance from the landlord or other parties. If this right is breached, the tenant may have a case for compensation or other remedies.
Landlords are generally required to keep the property in a reasonable state of repair, considering the property’s age, character, and prospective life. If necessary repairs aren’t made, tenants may be able to seek remedies such as rent reduction or termination of the lease
The laws vary, but generally, a tenant can change the locks without the landlord’s consent if there is a reasonable excuse, such as a threat to their safety. However, they may be required to give the landlord a copy of the new keys.
Yes, a tenancy agreement can be changed after it’s signed, but any changes need to be agreed upon by both the landlord and the tenant. The changes should be documented in writing.
If a tenant doesn’t pay rent, the landlord can issue a breach notice and possibly seek to terminate the lease. The tenant may also be ordered to pay the overdue rent and could lose their rental bond. If you’re having trouble making rent payments, seek legal advice promptly.
In most cases, the property being sold doesn’t affect a current lease. Tenants have a right to stay until the end of their fixed-term lease. If the property is sold during a periodic agreement, the tenant may be asked to vacate, but typically with a notice period. Laws can vary, so it’s recommended to seek legal advice.

Tina has been an absolute gem in assisting us with our journey to find our first home. As newcomers to the property market, the myriad of processes and legal documents left us feeling overwhelmed. However, Tina's unwavering support and guidance made it a breeze for us. Her meticulous attention to detail proved invaluable in identifying potential risks and swiftly addressing them on our behalf. We wholeheartedly recommend her services, particularly if you're seeking someone you can place your utmost trust in. She is a true professional who goes above and beyond to ensure a seamless experience.
Recently, because of selling a house, I got to know Ms. Tina from this law firm through a friend's introduction. A very cute and beautiful girl who can speak English Mandarin and Cantonese fluently. In the whole process of selling a house, the business is quite professional and skilled, explaining the clauses in the contract that the customer does not understand, and actively avoiding the unfavorable treaties for the customer. So the whole transaction went very smoothly, and all the house payments have been received today. Thanks to this beautiful lawyer in this law firm.

I needed legal advice on Copyright issues and spoke to John in CMI Legal. I found John to be very patient and genuinely wanted to help. He took an interest in my concerns and was very clear and thorough with his explanations of the legal aspects. He also went the extra mile to research any grey areas and promptly got back to us to confirm his findings. I am very grateful for the help from John and as a result of our consultation I have learnt the general rules of intellectual property copyright issues. I would not hesitate to seek John’s help if needed in the future and would highly recommend CMI Legal’s services to others.
