Conflict with neighbours is something you can experience in any home.
The various state and territory governments have information available for you if you are in conflict with neighbours over such issues as noise, fencing, trees and pets.
Disputes can be resolved without going to court and the information can be a good starting point to help you work out what to do next.
The advice includes information on:
- conflict resolution in Australia’s Capital Territory
- common disputes and what steps to take in New South Wales
- dispute settlement in Victoria; neighbourhood legal issue solutions in Tasmania
- neighbourhood dispute resolution in Queensland
- reporting disruptive neighbours in South Australia
- resolving disputes without court in the Northern Territory
- legal information on dealing with neighbours in Western Australia
Remember, if you are experiencing problems in your home, you can get help from a disability advocate or even file a complaint with police.
To speak to an advocate, email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voicemail at 1800 843 929. To speak with police, call the local number in your state or dial 000 in an emergency.
