Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 4 months ago

You have to file an urgent application with the court and seek a stay.

Time is not on your side though.

But you need the file number so the court knows the case.

Once you file the application the sherrif will be told to stop.

But it has to be done today and you are running out of time.

Do you know what time the bailiff is coming?

Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 4 months ago

You need to file a form 9 and a form 2

Here is a link and look at the heading Application to suspend enforcement

Also see fact sheet no 26

http://www.magistratescourt.wa.gov.au/_files/Civil_factsheet_26.pdf

This has to be done ASAP and if you can do it today you ay stop it

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.
