  • Have TT Filing Fees Changed?

    Ody's 10-month odyssey: Renter reunited with cat after timely Tenancy Tribunal intervention
    1 Oct 2022

    It took ten months, several false starts and a trip to the Tenancy Tribunal . . .

    Alistair and Fiona Gillespie, the owners of the apartment, had given permission for Netana-Rakete to keep a cat. When they learned the body corporate committee had turned down the application, they . . . decided to take the dispute to the Tenancy Tribunal, on their tenant’s behalf. “All the paper work was bloody rough,” Alistair Gillespie said. It wasn’t cheap either – coming to $3300 for the filing fee.
    Bloody hell!!

    Hi there Perry. Different fees for Body Corporate applications.

      There is? I did not know that. Where's the reference for that, Artemis?

      In this case, was it not two citizens applying against a body corporate?

      How much it costs to apply

      The application fee is $20.44 (including GST).

      If you are the one making the application, you pay the fee.

        its under the Unit Titles act not the RTA. They will refund if the hearing isnt held as this application often wakes the BC up?

          Tricky. Thanks. Something new I've learned today.

            Category 1 applications are average to high complexity and are likely to involve a hearing before the Tribunal. Application Fee: $3,300 including GST.
            Gives us an idea of the massive subsidy applied to RTA TT Kangaroo Kourt Hearings, eh?

              Tenancy hearings mainly funded by investment return on tenant bond money. Bonds spend power eaten away by inflation every year of course.

                Given the recent past few years investment interest situation, I wonder if "mainly" applied?

                And, of course, helped by the millions of unclaimed tenant bonds that the (be kind to tenants) gummint appropriates for its own benefit.
