Common civil disputes
If you ask our Ashmore civil lawyers what is one thing they wish all of their clients to know, their answer is clear. The costs will always be greater the longer you leave your dispute. Time and money can be saved if you seek advice from a qualified civil lawyer without delay.
We asked our team at Ashmore what are some of the most common civil disputes they get good results in, every day. Here are a few you should be aware about.
Common tenancy disputes include disputes relating to rent payment, rent increases and termination of a tenancy. If a tenant has not paid rent for seven days, the landlord may issue a Notice to Remedy Breach. If the tenant fails to pay the rent owing within seven days of the Notice, the landlord can issue a Notice to Leave requiring the tenant to vacate the premises within seven days of this second notice.
If a tenant ignores the Notice to Leave, the landlord can apply to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Appeals Tribunal to evict the tenant and get orders for termination of the tenancy agreement.
Whether you are a tenant facing a termination notice or a landlord enforcing a tenancy agreement, going to the Tribunal requires gathering evidence and crafting arguments supported by evidence. Our Ashmore civil lawyers can provide essential assistance in preparing for a hearing and arguing your case. More about landlord and tenant rights in Queensland can be found in our dedicated article, Landlords and Tenants in Queensland.
Employment disputes such as unfair dismissal claims commonly involve complex personal and professional relationships. It also can be easy to let emotions cloud your view of the situation.
You only have 21 days from the date of being dismissed to lodge an unfair dismissal claim under the Industrial Relations Act 2016. Our Ashmore civil lawyers can take the burden off your shoulders during what can be a very stressful time. We understand that your greatest concern may be getting food on the table. You can read more about employment disputes can be found in our Employment Law in Queensland article.
If you are owed money, it can be confusing to navigate the various courts and tribunals where you can seek repayment. You need to be aware that even if you get orders for repayment of the money, you may have to take further steps to enforce those orders through a complex process of garnisheeing wages or bank accounts.
Our Ashmore civil lawyers can ensure that all avenues for debt recovery are pursued, including settlement offers that may avoid going to court altogether. This can save you time and money in the long run.
