Can a builder legally change the locks on my property when he has been paid more than 80% and the stand is registered in my name, where there is a cost dispute?

Hi Kylee

The cannot do this and you have the right to lodge a spoliation application against him for denying you access. A lawyer will need to assist with this and will have to lodge such an application on your behalf. He will then also have to pay the costs of this

Your merits are 100%in your favour and suggest you take the appropriate legal action.
