The Law and You – 31st Jan 2023

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.

You can listen to the show from 31st Jan 2023 here:

  • Following on from last week’s program a detailed explanation is given of the limited circumstances in which a retaining wall may be considered to be a dividing fence under the provisions of the Neighbourhood Dispute Resolution Act (Diving Fences).
  • Consideration of how long should it take for a distribution to be made where an estate is not contested?
  • Should a body corporate be liable for damages where a sewerage leak is notified to the body corporate, but it fails initially to act on that advice resulting in damage to your apartment?
  • What should you do if your spouse is in hospital and the Adult Guardian intends to bring an application before QCAT to have you removed as attorney for your spouse?
  • What action can you take if fraudulent charges appear on your credit card and the bank is saying these charges were verified through a verification code sent to your phone, but you did not do this and it appears your phone was “ported” to allow a third party to do this?
