I was purchasing a unit & was negotiating with the tenants an early termination of their lease when out of the blue the tenant engaged a lawyer to act for them. The lawyer then got himself in between my lawyer & the sellers lawyer & demanded I was not to receive all necessary copies of the lease agreement or a key to my new property on settlement. There lawyer instructed or demanded the managing agent not release the above to me. This held up settlement & I have not received this important information or the key. On investigation I can see their lawyer & the managing agent have breached legislation here in Qld by not complying with the Residential Tenancy Act 2008. Has this lawyer, tenant & managing agent broken the law & can they be held accountable for this unlawful action? What action can I take to have them punished for them interfering with what has nothing to do with them with malicious intent? This is not the other side's lawyer, it is the tenants lawyer. Not at all invited or expected to be involved in the purchase settlement.
