John Melis, Expert

Hi! My name is***** a solicitor in Australia, and I’m happy to help you.

I'm sorry to hear about your tenant refusing to pay the invoices. What you can do in this particular case is commence proceedings immediately in the New South Wales civil administrative tribunal.

​The New South Wales Civil Administrative Tribunal “NCAT” is perfect for meditating disputes. It brings the parties together to discuss the issues.

I invite you to start with Fair Trading first. In most cases, at mediation, the matter will settle.

If you need to go to the tribunal, the document you file in the tribunal is the points of claim

The following link will assist you. http://www.ncat.nsw.gov.au

There are help menus on the website that will assist you with the application.

After lodging your application, you will receive an email from the tribunal. That email will explain the next steps.

Have I answered your question? If any part of my response is unclear, please let me know. It’s my goal to deliver excellent service, so please let me know if there is anything more I can do. Thank you for using our site.

I suggest that you do not disconnect the power but pursue proceedings in the court.
