I paid $3500 to a wedding venue for my son's wedding reception. Due to family reasons, I need the money back. The wedding isn't until April. Am I legally entitled to get this money refunded to me under Australian Consumer Law?
Along the same lines as what has already been mentioned above, the resolution here is really dependent on whatever contract was signed at the time the deposit was made or, in the absence of any written agreement, the words exchanged between parties before the deposit was made.
I would find it hard to believe that $3,500 would be put down without any paperwork?
