tenants rights

The Tenants’ Voice believes that through knowledge of your rights it is possible to avoid potential problems in all stages of a tenancy agreement.

From the moment the legal document is signed until the day you officially hand over the keys to move out, the landlord’s property is your home and all tenants are entitled to live in ‘quiet enjoyment’.

In this section you will learn about your rights as a tenant as well as your landlord’s legal obligations throughout your tenancy.
