Get help with neighbour disputes

We don't give legal advice about disputes between neighbours, but we may be able to give you some information over the phone. We may also be able to refer you to another organisation that can help you.

Phone 1300 792 387, Monday to Friday from 8.45 am to 5.15 pm.

If you need an interpreter let us know.

Other organisations that can help

Dispute resolution

The Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria has a free telephone service that will work with you to try to resolve your dispute. The centre will talk about your problem with you, discuss options, suggest negotiation strategies and organise mediation, if required.

Legal services

Your local community legal centre can give you legal information and advice. Most services are free.

Law Institute of Victoria

You can find a private lawyer near you through the Law Institute of Victoria’s Legal Referral Service. All law firms included in the Legal Referral Service provide a free 30-minute interview.

If you book an interview, write your questions down beforehand, so you get as much out of the free 30 minutes as possible. If you discuss getting further help from the lawyer, make sure you know how much it will cost.
