If you're evicted from your home

You cannot be evicted without a 'termination order' from the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal, and only the Sheriff can physically remove you.

If you don’t move out of the property by the date your lease ends, your landlord can apply for a termination order at the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal to have you evicted.

If you’re still in the property by the date in the termination order, a sheriff’s officer can legally remove you from the property under a warrant for possession issued by the tribunal or a court.

It’s illegal for a landlord to lock you out of your home without following this process.
