Hello my name is***** am a solicitor in NSW who is going to help you with your inquiry today.

I think what you're asking me is whether you have a valid tenancy agreement for that property. It turns out you need to have a written agreement for your tenancy to be valid on any property. If you haven't got one of those unfortunately you are trespassing and need to leave.

However if your concern is more about any criminal behaviour that may have occurred, I am not the best person to discuss that with. Can you confirm whether you need advice about that?

In relation to your homelessness I am terribly sorry for your terrible situation.

Perhaps you could contact Tenancy WA, whose details are here.

Even though technically you don't seem to have a valid residential tenancy agreement you could contact them about other rights you might have.

I hope that has helped you today.

Kylie

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
