Firm bucks trend, backs Nambour

Andrew Gardiner Law is encouraging more businesses to invest in Nambour as it announces its expansion into the hinterland.

Director Andrew Gardiner, who has practiced law for nearly three decades in Mooloolaba, decided the addition of the Nambour location would better serve hinterland clients who may prefer to handle their legal matters locally.  Read More

BEWARE OF SCAMMERS

Smart people get caught too! Imagine this scenario (that happened to a real person).

You get your builder in and have renovations done. The builder sends you an email with his invoice. You pay the agreed amount of $20,000. Everything is great. 

Three days later, you get another email from the builder with the same invoice. The bank details on the second invoice are different, but you pay it.

You have been scammed. By the time you talk to the builder and the bank, your money has gone through two accounts and is now overseas. 

Do you have to pay the builder (again)? 

The courts would look at:

• The contract between the parties. Was it in writing? Is there a clause that covers electronic payments?

• Whether a party was negligent. For example, if it is clear that one party has been hacked, that party would probably be deemed at fault. The problem is that scammers are good and no one will admit to being hacked.

Before making any substantial payment, get on the phone. Ask the other party for their bank account details. DO NOT email them! If the scammer already has access to the other partys email, they will assure you that the bank details are correct.

Have any legal questions? Dont hesitate to drop us a line to schedule a free initial consultation.

IS YOUR NEIGHBOUR’S PET A PEST?

By popular demand, Im answering a frequently asked question about dogs barking in the suburbs and what can we do about them. 

As with everything, there are rules. Typically, the rules are governed by the local authority.

If the dog next door keeps barking and is annoying you, try talking to your neighbour first. The Council will want to know that you have tried to resolve the problem.

If the dog keeps barking, you can make a complaint to Council and they will try to resolve the problem. If the barking is ongoing and found by Council to be a nuisance, a fine can result.

For the Sunshine Coast Council, see: https://www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Living-and-Community/Animals-and-Pets/Keeping-and-Exercising-Dogs/Responsible-Dog-Ownership.

On the Sunshine Coast, there are fines of $266 for dog nuisance, dog off leash and … not picking up dog poo!

My neighbour’s cat keeps coming in my yard and I’m afraid my dog will attack it one day. What can I do about it?

Good to know! 😁
