John Melis, Expert

Hi, I am John Melis, the solicitor. I am in Australia. I want to thank you for taking the time to speak with me today.

Hopefully, together we can find the right path for you. May I suggest the following for your consideration?

You can issue a nuisance complaint against your neighbour.

You can raise this complaint against your neighbour in the Queensland Civil Administrative Tribunal.

Would you like to consider this option?

​The Queensland Civil Administrative Tribunal “QCAT” is perfect for meditating disputes. It forces the parties to come together to discuss the issues involved.

In most cases at mediation, the matter will settle.

The document you file in the tribunal is the points of claim.

Draft the complaint chronologically, detailing the issue and what action you have taken to rectify the matter.

The following link will assist you further:

www.qcat.qld.gov.au

There are various help menus on the website that will assist you in finalising the application.

Once you lodge your application, you will receive notice from the tribunal with the next steps to follow.

​You’re handling this matter very well.

If there is anything else, big or small, that I can help you with today, please let me know?
