Residential Tenancies Law and Practice Press Reviews

The sixth edition of this practitioners' textbook on the New South Wales law of residential tenancies is the first edition which considers the now significant body of case law on the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 (NSW), the last edition having been published in 2011. It is structured as an annotation to that Act, but the commentary associated with each section is detailed and extends, when appropriate, to other legislation and the common law addressing the same subject matter as the section addressed. This text also addresses major decisions from other jurisdictions to the extent that they are relevant to New South Wales, and furthermore in respect of each section of the Act helpfully provides cross-references to the equivalent provisions in the legislation of each other Australian state and territory. - Queensland Law Reporter - 1 May 2015 - [2015] 16 QLR The present book is what might be called a child's guide to those who deal with the residential property market. This is said as a compliment and not in any derogatory sense. The book contains the text of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 (Cth) with annotations, including reference to unreported cases on the Act, the relevant regulations with model forms and a table of equivalent provisions in other jurisdictions. This work provides a convenient handbook for lawyers and real estate letting agents dealing with the residential tenancy market.
