Watergate back at court

02 Dec 2015

Watergate back at court Image

The Supreme Court will hear the Watergate short-stay appeal during the first half of next year.

Lawyers representing the Watergate owners’ corporation (OC) and short-stay operator Paul Salter appeared before the Supreme Court for a directions hearing on November 11.

The OC is appealing a Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) decision, which found it did not have the power to make rules prohibiting short-stays.

The VCAT case focused on action taken by the OC against nine owners of Watergate apartments used as short-stays through Paul Salter’s Docklands Executive Apartments business.

The OC alleged the nine owners had breached multiple OC rules.

Following the VCAT finding against the OC, the Supreme Court Appeal will proceed on two of the nine matters, one relating to Mr Salter’s own apartment, and will be heard together.

The remaining seven matters were struck out by VCAT, with right of reinstatement pending the outcome of the Supreme Court Appeal.

The appeal will be heard over two days next year.
