Hi and thanks, I've a query please on the cost of a Tribunal (NCAT) approach in 2017 as understand things may have changed.  Also, I got from Fair Trading on thephone that mediation is free. Any tips much appreciated.

It looks like mediation is free (didn't realise that) but NCAT fees are $99 for an individual, $198 for a corporation and $25 for a concession.

As Jimmy T suggests, go to the NCAT website to verify the fee.

Note that mediation in some cases is required before you can go to a hearing. Also, mediation is not compulsory in many cases, so you may be wise to prepare for a hearing in case you alone turn up to mediation and the other side doesn't.

Previously I applied for mediation and a hearing together.

 Hi all, Thanks for the feedback previously, and any tips appreciated. I've looked at NCAT site and find no answer.  Are mere owners able to present evidence at a Tribunal hearing under the new rules, or attend it?

And at a Strata Committee meeting called to discuss the hearing, or attend it like at our last EC's did?   

A committee member has called our BC to the Tribunal; think because the last general meeting was a bit confusing on issues resolved, or not resolved immediately.  This applicant is known as overbearing in attempts to influence unnecessarily large spends, which wer'e facing any time soon, on other works.

A few of us have sound arguments, and evidence aimed at maintaining a level playing field, a recent Fair Trading mediation ruling similarly.  Since the mediation, all the owners have pretty solid written and specialist evidence from the strata.    Again thanks.
