The NSW government says its Residential Tenancy Support package ‘will now be paid for a second month, and eligible landlords can now apply for up to $3,000 to cover the two months from July 14, 2021, assuming they have reduced rent for their tenant by at least that much’.
Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation Kevin Anderson added ‘Landlords who have already applied can make an additional application and those who are yet to apply will be able to make one application for the total amount of rent waived, up to $1,500 a month’.
‘Landlords will also have the option to apply for the COVID-19 land tax benefit, instead of applying for the Residential Tenancy Support Payment, which is an offset of the land tax liability equal to the rent reduction granted.
‘Eligible COVID-19 impacted residential tenants who cannot meet their residential rent payments will be protected from eviction during the moratorium period commencing from 14 July and finishing at the end of September 11, 2021’.
