I’d like to share a note from a happy client, who needed to get a relative and his wife out of his mother’s house. Names have been changed.
We drafted a notice making it clear that the relative and his wife were trespassing and that what he was doing was a criminal offence, including a copy of the relevant provision of the Code.
“The notice was hand delivered on the Saturday morning. The notice to vacate was to occur Sunday 5pm which did not happen. My brother and I visited the Hillary’s Police Station and convinced them it was not a civil dispute but a criminal matter (trespass) and with our agreement they then informed John and Mary that they had until 4pm Tuesday to leave. This they did but left a lot of their “stuff” in the unit’s outside storeroom. I sent a text to John reminding him that the Notice to Vacate included all of the unit including the outside storeroom – he was out by the following Sunday. No keys were left, however, the locks have been changed.
Thank you for your advice and assistance. It worked a treat.”
