How do I go to get neighbours who rent to stop harrassing my familly, we don't want to put our house on the market to

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: How do I go to get neighbours who rent to stop harrassing my familly, we don't want to put our house on the market to move from these tenants?
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: Due to my son's hot temper they took out an IVO against him which ceased on Friday 14th August, my sister took out a court order against them when they started baiting and harrassing my son while she was there. She has called the police and put her complaints on Crime Stoppers, she is the Manager of the Emergency Department and she has on 2 occassions come home to be abused and threatened once with the "Queensland Bikies" she doesn't need this after a 12 hour shift.
JA: Have you talked to a Queensland lawyer about this?
Customer: We are in Victoria not Queensland
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Last week when the police where here again, one of them told us to try VCAT under a Tenant's Reg. I have tried to find it and basically I want to send this information to the Property Manager to advise we are considering VCAT

Hi, I’m John, solicitor, and reviewing your post, and may need to ask a few questions a long the way to assist you.

With the communication you have had with the other party do you think this matter can easily be resolved or do you consider it should go to court or the tribunal for that fact

Customer
My sister attempted to take out an IVO against them in May but the Judge deemed it tit for tat and only issued a Court Order against them. The IVO against my son finished on Friday 14th August but he had a charge against him for breaching the IVO in March 2020 which I know he didn't do but he went to court and the Judge gave him a 12 month behaviour bond, no charge and no financial payment either. The boys across the street then became more brazen as the IVO was finishing and they bait my son but he has learned his lesson and will not give them reason to run to the Police as they have done previously, but a few times my Sister has been with Sean and they have harrassed and abused her as well. My sister is the Manager of the Emergency Department at Werribee Mercy Hospital, she puts in 12 hour days at the moment and she does not need to come home and be abused, we have called the police many times but because the IVO was against Sean they did not do much, I have emailed the Property Manager asking for her input, hoping she would say something to the Father who lives there sometimes. Her attitude was the same as the Judge that they this is just a case of everyone should grow up and act like adults, and try to keep the peace. On Thursday when the Police came again because of the harrassent and abuse, they mentioned a Regulation in the Tenants Act but could not remember which one, Reg 123 or 124, I have looked for this in the Tenants Act but cannot find the one about Tenants behaving in the neighbourhood. I want this to send to the Property Manager and advise her that we will be going further with this as we don't want to sell our home of which we have lived in for 11 years and this tenants have been here just over 2 years and right from the beginning, it was the motorbikes reving and the drums playing and the cars in the front, taking up the road with their parking and parties. The owners of the house live next door to us but they do not want to get involved and will do nothing as well. It might seem like a dispute between the father and my son, which it started out as when he got so mad about the noise and the fuel smell coming our way that he did go and mouth of, but the father took it further by going to the police and getting the IVO, this seems to give them the right to continue as they have but we have had to sit back and not say anything or do anything in return. My sister and I own the house, we are in our 60s and I am currently in remission for breast cancer and I do not go out the front of my house unless I am going to a doctor's appointment because I am scared of them. It is looked upon a neighbourhood spat but this is the first time for both of us, we want to have this resolved without any backlash from them.
