Pensioner Spends Eight Years and $50,000 Trying to Evict Daughter From His Apartment

Recommended Posts

An 84-year-old retired farmer from Melbourne, Australia, has been trying to get his own daughter evicted from his apartment for eight years, but despite spending a small fortune on legal fees, he has been

unsuccessful.

 

Peter Grundy, a retired wheat farmer from the Australian state of Victoria, has been trying to sell his apartment so he can move into a retirement home.

 

He isn’t entitled to a pension, so in order to secure his place there he needs to pay up front, but in order to do that he has to sell the apartment.

 

The only problem is Peter has been trying to do just that for the last eight years, only his 49-year-old daughter, Katrina, has been doing everything in her power to stop him.

 

Despite his best efforts to get her evicted from his property, including taking her to court, Katrina hasn’t budged and legal experts say the pensioner has exhausted all legal options.

 

The state of Victoria has no other mechanism available to him [Peter] to get her out – he’s followed through on everything he can do, yet she remains, and it seems every day she remains it’s another day of injustice for him,” property lawyer James Lawrence told 9News’ A Current Affair.

 

Katrina reportedly says that her parents gifted her the Melbourne apartment eight years ago, a claim that the judge has already dismissed, but that hasn’t stopped her from allegedly squatting there against her father’s wishes.

 

She even placed a caveat on the property, which has proven a very clever and efficient way of delaying and eventually canceling any potential transactions.

 

Very clever and very clever in legal terms – and solicitors and the barrister said – she is someone I’ve never met the like of – she has an enormous capability to come up with things we never hear of,” Peter Grundy said.

 

The 84-year-old told reporters that he has so far spent around AU$ 70,000 trying to evict his daughter, not to mention the AU$ 200,000 in estimated rent losses he incurred over the last eight years.

The so-called reporter of that article is a complete idiot. Title says PENSIONER then the 3rd sentence says "He isn’t entitled to a pension". So is he a pensioner or not? You can't be a pensioner if you don't get a pension!!

His access to the Age Pension would be hindered by the Assets Test, which is looking at the Apartment as an Income creating Rental property. The poor fella has already said he's losing the Rent potential of the place, because 'she' is in it... 

 

The Report doesn't actually say that He is living in it.He's probably still out on that old wheat property, and if so, then there's 2 properties in the Assets test... 

 

 

currently being seen as a Self funded retiree

There may be many reasons why he does not receive a pension

 

The guy is 84 - it states this in the article in fact in the first 4 words - I think that pretty much makes him a pensioner

 

Note to Mods - can you please introduce a intelligence test before posters are allowed to comment?

Um, you my friend need an intelligence test an English comprehension test. Just because he's "An 84-year-old retired farmer" that doesn't make him a pensioner. A pensioner is someone receiving a pension.

This is correct, as he's not receiving a pension.

On a trip round Australia last year, I was astounded at how large, fat and flabby were the Australian women, of all ages. Obviously there was an odd (very odd) exception - but I certainly saw no stunners.

The men were almost as bad, but the Russians have them beat.

The world is eating itself to death.
