E C Legal is sometimes asked if goods which have been repaired or stored but not collected by the owner can be sold to pay the debt owed in respect of the cost of repairs or storage.
The answer is “Yes” provided that the repairer / storage provider has followed the process set out in the Australian Consumer Law.
If you wish E C Legal to handle all aspects of this process for you then, please provide us with:
a description of the goods
all documentation in relation to the work done e.g. repair agreements, quotes, invoices etc.
the contact details of the customer
E C Legal will provide a no obligation quotation.
