ABOUT

Blue Mountains Tenants' Advice and Advocacy Service (BMTAAS) is a free, confidential service that assists tenants in the Blue Mountains. BMTAAS provides advice and information about your rights as a tenant; advocates on your behalf in negotiations with your landlord or real estate agent; represents you in the Tribunal; provides community education to tenants, community organisations and service providers on tenancy issues.

Our services are available to renters from Lapstone to Mt Tomah. We help renters living in private rentals, social housing, Aboriginal housing, residential caravan parks, and strata title units. Please note: we require the full name of your landlord before we can provide tenancy advice.

We have intake for appointments Monday to Friday 9.30 am – 4.30pm. Appointments are available by phone, and depending on circumstances, face-to-face.

BMTAAS is a program of Elizabeth Evatt Community Legal Centre.
