Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

You have followed the correct steps. Well done.

What you need to do is appoint a lawyer in Melbourne to issue the demand as you noted, and if payment is not received, then to commence proceedings in the Magistrates Court.

What would you like to do next ?

Can I appoint a solicitor Nsw send on my behalf
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

yes you can, but it is possible that the car dealer will refer the proceedings back into the Victorian Courts.

Your situation can go either way.

Just be prepared.
