Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. I will do my best to assist you with your question.
Did you get the permission from the body corporate?
If they said no you cannot have the dog and you are in breach of the rules.
You have a right to take it to QCAT and seek an order from them to keep the dog.
I am not sure who said QCAT had a conflict of interest but that is not correct.
QCAT is the correct jurisdiction to take a body corporate to to be allowed to have a dog.
QCAT is a tribunal they hear cases.
They do not take on clients.
You lodge a complaint with them against the body corporate and then you all go to court and a member of QCAT listens to both of you and decides who is right and makes an order.
Here is some information.
Your dispute is about the by-laws
I do not know.
You have to download the application and complete it and file it.
They wont give you an appointment. It is a tribunal, similar to a court.
You are best to see a solicitor that practices in property law and in particular deals with body corporates.
QCAT will only take your application and list it and the matter will then run.
