After I had been waiting several months, my NCAT hearing regarding a fencing dispute with a neighbour, was due to be heard today. It didn’t last very long. Because I had filed the application in my name and not as “Owners’ Corporation Strata 1234”, the matter could not be heard and needed approval of the Owners’ Corporation (ie me and two others) made at an EGM. I spent many hours compiling my brief of evidence according to NCAT’s requirements, including reference to the Strata Plan, and submitted it on time, like 2 months ago. Surely, at some point someone could have said, “Hey, just a minute, you’ve done it wrong.” NCAT must have known that this was a strata matter because that was the first question the NCAT man asked me before “NCAT says No'”. But going back to NCAT will be too hard and the neighbours are too recalcitrant. We are going to have the fence repaired out of our pot and take this as an expensive learning experience. I hope others learn from this and wish you luck with NCAT.
