Hilarious court update
« on: May 16, 2018, 09:20:29 AM »
Soooo today was my showdown at a tribunal with the real estate agents who served eviction notice on ex and would not negotiate with me so that I wouldn't be black listed

It was awesome. Just like a movie

I prepared a three page statement and evidence to support that I was sleeping on an air bed with kids due to family violence and paying two tents to honour my obligations to the end of the lease.

The magistrate was fantastic. He's like so it sounds that you do not mind your Bond going to compensate loss of owners you don't want a mark against your name.

I said that is correct.

He turns to agents 'do you have discretion in applying these marks against her name?' They said yes. So will you allow her to sign over Bond and not black list her? No.

Omg they said no. He then sent them out of court room. I want you to go away and have a discussion and come back and tell me what you are going to do.

They did as he said. When they returned he asked again 'will you blank list her considering what she just told us all about her situation with family violence?'

Yes we will.

He nearly fell off his chair. He said in front of an audience that he took his job on to decide cases without fear or favour and he will however that he had never seen such a heartless response in his court.

Everyone in room deathly quiet.

He turned to me. I'm sorry but I don't have authority in this role to change that black listing.

I said yes I understand however there is an obscure law where you have authority to determine amounts of costs and who pays what. If you look at section XYZ you can give me a nominal
Amount which I'll pay and then they can't black list me.

He then said I will need to call a recess to determine that. It sounds as if you have got legal advice. I said no I just googled.

He went off to research.

We all waited. Women in the courtroom told me good luck and how angry they were. They said those agents are an abomination.

He returned and said nobody has used that law in my court before and in refreshing my memory you are correct he said looking at me. My heart was singing

So I am going to determine how much should be paid for cleaning gardening and repairs to the property.

I have determined the entire cost will go to the male tenant (my ex!!)


Hahaha yay yay yay. Agents not happy. Suck that.

Not only that but everyone who comes into
His court in future like this he will remember he can fairly distribute costs so as to not revictimise the victim.

No black mark for me!!!

That's brilliant 2nice! I LOVE the way you told the judge what to do through the magic of Google! !! He sounds like a good egg   :applause: :thumbup:  :)
Love is patient; love is kind.
It does not envy; it does not boast.
It is not proud. It does not dishonour others.
It is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered.
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

1 Corinthians 13: 5-8.

Good for you. There is a website where you can blacklist agents. You might find them on it already.after a couple of bad experiences we are very careful who we use. There's some real nasty agents out there and some really good ones
