Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I have a Vcat hearing at 2pm today
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: the landlord application states “ the landlord wants the tenant to leave because they owe at least 14 days rent” I have paid the rent fully up to date and launched an application myself which I have a ref number but not a date yet. My question is , am I in my rights to ask for this application to be dismissed as it’s not correct, I am not 14 days in arrears and am 100% up to date ??
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: Victoria
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: that’s about it. There are many issues that I have raised in my application regarding repairs etc and general bad practice and conduct by the landlord agent

Good Afternoon

What did VCAT order?

If the rent was paid in full then VCAT could dismiss the landlords application
