On 27th October 2016, Sarah Drury and Mary Flowers from Northern Rivers Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service (NORTAAS) attended Casino Gateway Lifestyles Residential Community to conduct an information session about the Residential (Land Lease) Communities Act 2013. The session was organised in in collaboration with community residents and the community operator, who advertised the event in the community newsletter.

100+ eager Home Owners were in attendance asking broad ranging questions and testing Mary and Sarah’s knowledge of the new legislation. Luckily the operator had the forethought to set up a PA system, and the crowd was able to hear and engage thoroughly with the information presented. Mary and Sarah were swamped with attendees at the end requesting further information and advice.
