The Law and You – 15th Nov 2022

Each week John Fradgley of Bell Legal Group presents a radio phone-in show on Gold Coast’s Community Radio Station 4CRB called ‘The Law and You’ where listeners call in and ask John their questions about a wide range of legal issues.

  • If a gas company has been supplying gas to heat the community hot water system for many years but has never rendered an account in relation to the gas supply, what are the consequences if the Body Corporate decide to notify the gas company of their failure;

  • Discussion about a tree that is on the boundary between two properties and who is liable to cut back the section that is overhanging the neighbour’s property;

  • Discussion concerning the recent class action settlement against CBA, Westpac and ANZ for selling dodgy consumer credit insurance;
  • Discussion concerning the Deed of Company Arrangement entered into by the Administrators of Probuild which ensured that the small creditors (less than $25,000) each receive 100 cents in the dollar for the debts they were owed.
