What information is provided in a QCAT Neighbourhood Disputes Registry Search (Tree and Fence)?

CITEC Confirm provides the QCAT Neighbourhood Disputes Registry Search (Tree and Fence). The search is conducted on the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) Register of Proceedings to determine if any proceedings have been commenced regarding neighbourhood disputes under the following acts:

  • Building Act 1975, Chapter 8, Part 2A (dividing fences that are also pool barriers)
  • Neighbourhood Disputes (Dividing Fences and Trees) Act 2011
  • Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2009, Chapter 2, Part 1, Division 2 (minor civil disputes for debt or liquidated demand of money related to dividing fences or trees).

The search will show the date of application, the case number, the names of the parties involved and the current status of the case (at the time of request).
