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.
