Off We Go

Well VCAT is scheduled tomorrow, still waiting for the forms to be sent out (After a week  I downloaded them and faxed them in), still waiting for notification of the event (Mother Dearest rang to find out, that they had sent everything to the tenant’s address. Bureaucracy the last refuge of the incompetent and those who still care).

Of course he hasn’t a leg to stand on, but me and “systems” don’t work well together. So I’m prepared to be disappointed, but I’m also prepared. Probably the most important question I can put to the tenant is has made any preparaions of moving out, so far no signs of it.

    Can’t the police do anything about it or does it have to be done by lots of paperwork and the courts to shift somebody!

    Not until a court/tribunal has heard the matter Mr Stu, tenants have rights but no obligations it seems.

    Couldn’t you borrow a skunk from the zoo for a bit!

    Try and get the tenant talking, it is amazing people’s capacity to talk themselves into trouble.

    WE HAVE A WIN! Tenant didn’t show, a warrant of possession can be issued and I have an official order for what is owed. I won’t see it as a lump sum but if it buys some beer each week that beer will taste so much better.

    I’ll check tomorrow to see if he has disappeared and if not apply for the warrant. This nearly ends the saga of no good deed goes unpunished.

    VCAT didn’t stuff up, I got the forms wrong (pretty normal for me).
