What is an end of tenancy survey? 

Fair Trading is conducting an ongoing quarterly End of tenancy survey to collect data about how and why tenancies end. Tenants, landlords, and agents can voluntarily complete this survey after a bond claim is finalised online through the Rental Bond Online system. The survey helps to inform, assess and evaluate tenancy policy in NSW. Understanding rental experiences will help future tenancy reforms.
