Our friends, young couple from India bought a property in Perth. After the agreement became unconditional, they were allowed to move in to the house pending settlement as the house was vacant. But the seller faced some problems in getting the banks to release the mortgage on the property and defaulted on settlement. Instead of that he demanded more money for his property and both parties went to court. When the civil case in process through lawyers, the seller came to the house with 20 people on one weekend and asked our friends to vacate immediately. Our friends called the police and the cops came in but offered little help. They said they could not do anything as the case is in court. Finally our friends were forced to move out of the house in their night dress with no wallets or any other documents. All their furniture were thrown on back of the truck and dropped at a storage place. The house has been now rented out to some one else. Our friends are now staying with us now with nothing in their hand desperately looking for rental house. We would like members of this forum to help us getting justice as we could not get any help from Police and we don’t know where to go. WE believe that this very cruel to force one out of house without even giving time to pick up their essential belongings for no fault of theirs. All the furniture has been damaged and the fridge was shifted without removing the food inside which has now became rotten. The electricity and gas connections were still in our friend’s name and someone is living there now using it. I got them disconnected this morning. The couple are undergoing so much stress and hardship that we don’t want anyone else to face the same consequences. We would like to know is it legal to use force to vacate from your own house.
