I called rhe insurance company to make a claim under theft as the policy states if the vehecle is not in the property it cannot be insured.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Good Morning

The police are correct.

You are going to have to make an application with the Family Court/Federal Circuit Court to get property orders and for them to be returned.

This is the only way you can do this.

Alternatively if you know where the car and caravan are, and you have keys to them you can attend and take them yourself.

But be careful that you are not accused of trespass.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon
