Problems with your house or home can have legal answers

Issues around where you live can be legal problems, even when we don't think of them as legal.

Understand when problems are legal problems

We can all experience problems with things like difficult landlords, mould in your property or fencing and tree disputes. 

If you need help with issues around where you live, there are many legal resources available.

Knowing that your problem could be a legal problem means you can find the help to solve it. 

Find the right help

Whether your problem is big or small, once in a lifetime or every day, Victorian Law Week is an opportunity to learn how the law can help.
