Trespass is where a person/s enter your land without consent or legal authority. A claim may be made against the person who has committed the trespass on your land. This claim will be for damage or loss that has occurred as a result of the trespass.
An example of trespass could include a neighbour entering your property without consent to:
- Remove a dividing fence;
- Cut tree branches;
- Access your house;
- Damage your property;
- Interfere with your pets.
If someone has committed an act of trespass, it may also lead to a person fearing for their safety or their property. In these instances, they may be able to apply for an Apprehended Violence Order (“AVO”) against the trespasser. At Navado, our team has experience in advising and assisting clients in actions in trespass and also AVO proceedings.
