Lawyer's Assistant: What state/territory are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Tasmania

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

We only found out yesterday, we have not done anything until we knew were we stood legally

No, we want your advise first
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

What you need to do is to write a formal complaint to the company. This complaint needs to be in a chronological order detailing what is the issue and what action you have taken to try and rectify the matter.

The complaint needs to be in a chronological order with numbered points 1, 2, 3, etc.

The complaint needs to have detailed what you need fixed and for a time limit of a minimum of 14 days to apply.

The complaint then needs to be sent to the dispute resolutions department. Make sure you keep a copy for yourself.

Preferably send the complaint by email.

If you do not receive a reply within 14 days issue a follow up complaint to the first complaint issued.

If no response is received then it is time to commence an action in the local tribunal.

Would you like to try this option first.
