Tenancy rights

Consumer and Business Services (CBS) provides information about rights and obligations under residential tenancy, rooming house and residential park agreements. 

Whether you are renting or managing a rental property, tenancy laws are in place to protect you. Further information is available at sa.gov.au.


If you have a residential renting, leasing or community housing dispute, you can first try to discuss and resolve it with the other party. If you haven’t been able to resolve it together, you can make an application to the the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT) to seek a resolution.

SACAT helps people in South Australia to resolve issues, either through agreement at a conference, conciliation or mediation, or through a decision of the tribunal at hearing.
