Eastern Area Tenants Service (EATS) offers free advice, information and help to renters who live in the Waverley, Woollahra and Randwick council areas in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. We are funded by NSW Fair Trading and the majority of our funding comes from the interest earned on tenants’ bonds.

EATS helps renters in private rental and public housing, boarders and lodgers and people living in share-houses. We are not able to advise landlords or head-tenants who have a dispute with their sub-tenants. 

Eastern Area Tenants Service is closed from 12pm on 22 December 2021 to 9:30am on 11 January 2022.  If you need urgent advice over the holiday period, you can call the Tenants' Union Christmas Hotline on 1800 251 101.  The hotline is open each weekday from 9:30am - 1pm and 2pm - 5pm, with the exception of public holidays.  You can also call NSW Fair Trading on 13 32 20 for information about your rights.
