I'm on bail and the registered address bail address

Customer Question

I'm on bail and the registered address for my bail address is a place I'm subleasing off a friend. He is the actual tenant and is the person on the lease but doesn't live at the property. He has informed me that his lease had been cancelled and I must vacate immediately. What do I do I. Terms of making sure I dint breach my bail? Should I go to a police station and let them know? I'm due to appear in court again on thursday

Go to the police now and indicate to them where you propose to stay and advise them of the current situation.
It is imperative that you do so.
No you have not breached bail, but it is necessary to advise them as to what is happening.

Good Afternoon
My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question.
You have to advise the court and the police that you are having to leave and move elsewhere.
Provided the police and the court accept where you are living you have nothing to worry about.
Do you have anywhere else to live?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes I can stay with a friend. Do you actually have to sleep at your bail address every night? Or what does reside mean?

Expert:  Leon replied 2 years ago.

If they say you have to be there from X time to X time then yes

Good Evening
If you are supposed to live there yes every night.
If you wish to go elsewhere you have to have the conditions changed to say that you can stay elsewhere but you need to notify the police of where you will be.
This can be done and you need the police consent to do it.
Good luck
