Court actions

Melbourne Magistrate’s Court has granted final orders against South Melbourne real estate agency Infolio Corp Pty Ltd and its former director Cameron Deal to restrain them from operating as a real estate business without a licence.

The court found that the company had breached the Real Estate Agents Act 1980 by operating without a licence between September 2009 and 11 August 2010.

Consumer Affairs Victoria took out a temporary injunction against Infolio Corp Pty Ltd in April.

This action resulted in the company appointing a licensed officer to control its operations. 

Melbourne Magistrates’ Court made final orders on 17 August to:

  • restrain Mr Deal from managing Infolio Corp’s property rental business 
  • restrain the company from conducting a real estate business unless licensed 
  • require the company to publish a corrective advertisement in a weekend newspaper’s property section by 19 September.
The company, which has since received its real estate licence, was ordered to pay $2500 costs.
