Commonwealth Games reminder – court changes, business and transport delays

There will be significant disruption on the Gold Coast and in other parts of Queensland during the Commonwealth Games (4-15 April 2018).

Practitioners are reminded that this will affect the operation of courts and tribunals, as outlined in our court changes notice. It is also recommended that practitioners plan for potential delays to property settlements, meeting terms, serving notices, council or business services or conditions of agreements.

Lexon has also considered the impact of the Games in its Risk Alert of 16 February 2018.

Practitioners should stay informed of changed arrangements including the temporary closure or relocation of local solicitor offices for the duration of the Games.
