Factsheets

Our land lease community factsheets give an overview of residents' rights and responsibilities under NSW law and provide guidance on how to deal with some of the common issues that arise in land lease communities.

NSW land lease community law can be complex because more than one Act and several sets of regulations may come into play in regard to a single issue.

Be aware the law applies differently to people who rent both the site and the home (tenants) and those who rent only the site (home owners). Some of the legal information on this site is directed only at one group or the other.

We have three types of factsheets:
