Q:

I am living in NSW I have been renting a house for 3 year in a Village zoned town. My landlord is subdividing the property. I was told by fair trading that I could negotiate the time of her working on the property. She is going owner builder. But someone said that once the block is subdivided I have no rights because it is no longer part of my property. I also know that her last 3 builds she was painting at midnight. Who is right?

Q:

Hi,
We have been renting a property for the past 4 years.
It is a one story subdivided terrace house, which shares a block with the adjoining house.
My question arises from the fact that on our rental agreement our property is stated as being '1/4a', however when we attempted to change our address with the voting polls we were informed that '1/4a' is not a registered address only 1/4 is, this is backed up by auspost.
Is this a breach of our rental contract?
kind regards

Q:

: I am in a Strata of 6 villas. We have a council of owner of 5 members. The law requests a minimum of 3 members. To fill the 3 positions? Do we have to elect a chairman, a secretary and a treasurer? The existing chairman believes she is the only one elected and can delicate tasks of secretary and treasurer to different members at any time as she field fit. Is that according to law?
