INTIMIDATION AND REVENGE
SUMMARY OF MOTIVE

Intimidation and revenge by scheme operators - summary of their motive

1. Motivation of malice

The scheme operators of the Laurel Springs Retirement Village, Lusping Pty Ltd, are motivated by malice because of my investigations into their mismanagement of village finances, defrauding of residents, and the failed development of new units. In addition to seeking revenge, they seek to interfere with my financial and personal ability to conduct my cases in ongoing QCAT legal disputes and protect the rights of residents. They know that my only assets are my retirement unit and its contents, and have no income except the pension, so I will be driven bankrupt if their claims succeed, allowing the them to evict me from Laurel Springs:

2. Complaint to the Department of Housing and Public Works

On 2 November 2018 I made a written complaint to the Department of Housing and Public Works, the regulator of the Retirement Villages Act, about my findings of financial mismanagement of Laurel Springs. I later made further complaints, and the regulator issued official warnings to the scheme operator about their financial mismanagement of Laurel Springs. All relevant documents are available on the FINANCIAL INVESTIGATION link above.

3. Letter to Residents - exposed financial mismanagement, and deception

On 2 November 2018 I wrote to all residents of Laurel Springs, informing them about my complaint to the regulator, and exposed the deception of the residents by the scheme operators stated in paragraph 6.12 above. All relevant documents are available on the FINANCIAL INVESTIGATION link above.

4. Successful QCAT appeal

On 19 November 2018, I filed an application with QCAT in relation to the matters referred to above. This ultimately resulted in the finding of the QCAT Appeal Tribunal, adverse to the scheme operators. All relevant documents are available on the FINANCIAL INVESTIGATION link above.

5. QCAT class action

On 2 November 2020, I invited all residents of Laurel Springs to join a class action (QCAT OCL110-20), in which I represent a group of residents, to achieve the same outcome as obtained in my own precedent case referred to above. The residents in the group have unanimously accepted my advice and refused to sign a settlement deed containing Confidentiality and Reputation clauses. All relevant documents are available on the FINANCIAL INVESTIGATION link above.

6. Complaint to Sunshine Coast Council - unlawful dumping

On 13 May 2019, I made a written complaint to the Sunshine Coast Council about the unlawful dumping of large quantities of broken concrete and other building rubble onto adjoining land, by the scheme operators in their other role as developers of the extension of Laurel Springs. The affected land is a Riparian Protection Area associated with a creek which flows through my land. The council ordered the removal of the rubble; the cost of tipping fees alone was $45,000. All relevant documents are available on the DEVELOPMENT INVESTIGATION link above.

7. Complaint to Sunshine Coast Council - road conditions

On 20 May 2019, I made a written complaint on behalf of a group of residents, to the Sunshine Coast Council about the road conditions near the site of the village extension. The original concrete road had broken up and had not been replaced, leaving elderly residents to walk through mud; the scheme operators, in their role as developers, were ordered to replace the road. All relevant documents are available on the DEVELOPMENT INVESTIGATION link above.

8. Complaint to Sunshine Coast Council - false information in development application document

In the complaint referred to above, I also complained about false information knowingly provided by scheme operators to the council, in a development application document. The scheme operators claimed that there are three golf buggies available on-call to transport residents around Laurel Springs, whereas there is only one buggy used mainly to transport staff; it is not generally available to residents on-call. All relevant documents are available on the DEVELOPMENT INVESTIGATION link above.

9. Complaint to Sunshine Coast Council - non-compliance with approval conditions for village extension

On 21 September 2020, I made a written complaint to the Sunshine Coast Council in relation to a retaining wall which supports filled land onto which new units were built. Council has consequently commenced an investigation of the non-compliance with approval conditions; they have rejected the engineer’s report for the retaining wall, belatedly submitted by the scheme operators in their role as developer, because it does not comply with the conditions of approval. All relevant documents are available on the DEVELOPMENT INVESTIGATION link above.

10. Involvement with assisting elderly buyers of new unit

The scheme operators know that I have been assisting the two elderly residents, who bought a new unit built on the land supported by the retaining wall referred to above, by referring them to a specialist lawyer, providing technical assistance with communication of documents, and explaining engineering and legal issues relating to their unit.
