Customer Question

I was sent some very cruel and nasty email/texts telling a lot of lies (no threats), and believe this person also accessed my property using a key they had but no damage or theft occurred. Am I able to do anything about this? This happened a few months ago and nothing has happened since.

Good Evening

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

The email was sent to you and therefore there is no action for defamation.

If they have entered your home without your consent it is a criminal offence but how did they get the key?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The key was given to them by me ages ago and I had forgotten all about it.Can I press charges against them?
Expert:  Leon replied 9 months ago.

Good Morning

You can speak to the police about it and in the end they will decide if they charge them.

If you change the locks and he tries to get access again then you have a better chance because the key is not working and he may cause damage and it will be a stronger case.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance if there is nothing further
