If your friend has a permanent residential address, you can raise a debt claim to that address.

A debt claim is brought into QCAT for the outstanding amount.

If you friend fails to appear at QCAT you will get a judgement order in your favour and you can then commence collection proceedings against him for the debt due.

Did you have any written contract with your friend ?

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.

Queensland : No : I have just been to a caravan show in
I have just been to a caravan show in Brisbane and signed a contract on a caravan oder. We then came home and absolutely felt sick that we had done it. we signed at 3.12pm. We then got home and realised we cannot afford it and emailed the salesman that we wish to cancel the contract due to finanical reasons. It was 4-5 hours after we had signed….and I sent the email. The order had not been placed with the dealer. I have since been told that the Dealer is not going to refund our deposit. The staff said it was the Managers discretion, and was unaware if there is any cooling off period in Queensland. can we pursue a refund? The van is not supposed to be collected till Feb?March 2017. I was going to contact consumer rights to see if we have a chance to recover our money at all. … read more
