Customer Question

My ex partner of 7 months owns a removal company. I have my belongs stored there and he is trying to charge me $800 for storage for the past 3 months as he is bitter about the break up 2 weeks ago. He will not release my belongs to another storage place until I have paid. I have requested an invoice but he will still not email one to me. I also have not signed any legal contract to have it stored there. What are my options???
Thanks Robyne

Good Morning

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.

You should file an application with NCAT and seek and order for it to be released.

You put forward the events and that he is refusing to give you an invoice.

If you agree with the amount once he issues the invoice you have to pay it.

If you do not agree you have to set out what your believe is fair and ask NCAT to deal with it that way.

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

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
