Is it legal for a Perth mechanic to hold my car due to unpaid bill?

Have you paid your Perth mechanic? If you have not, you may not be able to get your car back. Most people do not know this, but mechanics are allowed under Western Australian Laws to hold onto a car if their invoice or bill has not been paid.

If you find yourself without a car due to an unpaid Perth mechanic's bill, I would suggest you talk to a Perth lawyer who understands this area of law.

A Perth mechanic who holds on to your car is generally in a tricky situation. Your mechanic cannot simply sell your car to collect what he is owed. There is a strict process to follow if he wishes to do that.

Generally speaking, a relevant Western Australian Court must be involved at some stage.

If you find yourself in the situation where you have not paid your Perth mechanic's bill or invoice, speak to Perth lawyer at BMS LAW today.
