    I am the owner of an OC unit in Vic. The owner of the neighbouring unit died some 10 years ago leaving no will. The property has remained as a deceased estate for this period of time. The owner has children in the area but none are interested in settling as it will affect their govt benefits. Extended family use the property as a squat with no power and no water. The property owes over $20k in council rates and over $10k in body corporate.What can be done?

    For $10K, it may be worth seeking the advice of a lawyer. You may need to force the sale of the property, possibly through VCAT, to recover what is owed.

    What area in Vic?
