    Is it lawful for a solicitor based in Queensland to instruct an agent in NSW to act in a way so as to usurp the tenants rights of a respondent in a tenancy tribunal hearing, i.e. to show no leniency, to ensure he has no representation and that his bond be withheld? (this document was entered as sworn evidence by the agent )

    The agent has also refused to honour an undertaking to the Member to supply a written reference to the respondent. It is also evident that the two agents have interfered in 8 applications by the respondent for other properties making it impossible for him to comply with the Tribunals Orders. NSW police have already been called once to enforce a Stay Order by NCAT during forced eviction attempt by one of the agents.

    The situation is urgent and critical.

    Can you please provide more background in this matter? The "general scenario" you are trying to present is unclear.

    What type of agent? Are you referring to a legal agent or property agent? How have the "agents" "interfered"? What "applications" are you talking about? and what tribunal orders are already in place?
