I hired a buyer's agent who is licensed in QLD. The buyer's agent was to research and recommend property investment. The properties weren't recommended well and to cut a very long story short, did not comply with the Australian Consumer Law. They also did not comply with the Property Agents and Motor Dealers Act Chapter 5 Part 2 Division 2, where the appointment was not on the approved form. In fact the actual details of appointment was poorly documented. Legal action in WA or QLD? Can the magistrate in WA make a ruling on QLD legislation? If not, could I use the Australian Consumer Law (which is national) and take action in WA? If QLD is the only option and I have to appear in person can you claim for these costs? Or the costs for someone to represent you?
