In the Australian Capital Territory, property offences are regulated by two separate pieces of legislation: the Criminal Code 2002 and the Crimes Act 1900. Property offences covered by this legislation range from damaging property with a value of only a few dollars to arson. The maximum penalty for a property offence varies depending on the offence.
The pages below have been designed to inform you of the different types of charges relating to damaging property offences and penalties available to the Court.
