The Community Disputes Resolution Act (CDRA) creates a new statutory tort of interfering with the enjoyment or use of places of residence. The underlying principle is that no person should cause unreasonable interference with his neighbour's enjoyment or use of that neighbour's place of residence.
The CDRA also establishes the Community Disputes Resolution Tribunal (CDRT) as part of the State Courts to hear cases under the CDRA.
As criminal provisions do
not have retrospective application, the CDRA only applies to acts committed
on or after the date it comes into force (1 October 2015).
Your neighbour is a person who:
Your neighbour does
not include a person who lives in the same place of residence as you.
You may provide the following as evidence:
Notes:(1) All non-English documents must be translated into English by a certified court interpreter or a translation verified by the affidavit of a person qualified to translate it before it may be received, filed or used in the CDRT.(2) All relevant audio or video recordings must be in CD-R or DVD-R (non-rewritable).(3) The relevant parts of all audio or video recordings tendered into evidence must be accompanied by a transcript, i.e. be reduced into writing.
