Dear customer, my name is***** solicitor, thank you for using Just Answer, I will assist with your question today. Please allow me a few moments to review your post and I will respond accordingly.

In relation to your important question, rebirthing a caravan is illegal around Australia. Once a caravan has been written off it cannot be re-registered. There have been numerous scams around Australia concerning rebirthing of caravans.

Where you have purchased the caravan and it is a rebirthed one, you will be able to raise civil proceedings against the seller subject to the facts of the matter.

If you would like to discuss this matter further by telephone or require me to review a contract, I welcome you to request those services.

If you have any further questions, I would be pleased to answer those for you.

Kind regards *****

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
