Throughout Angela has been the consummate professional. She maintained a calm, yet strong demeanour remained informative and completely open in her communication and took complete ownership of the situation. We felt confident we finally had an advocate to steer us out of the nightmare we were in, and she did so with great respect and sincerity. I cannot speak more highly of Angela. She has literally rescued our family from what looked very much like a hopeless future.
Words can’t describe how grateful I am to Trudie Cameron being my solicitor and to Andrew Tiedt presenting my case in the court. They both have been very supportive and amazingly professional and effective. I’ve got an absolutely fantastic outcome I couldn’t even dream about.
Soon after meeting Andrew I knew he was the solicitor I wanted to handle my matter. He immediately sprang into action which brought me stability and hope during a tumultuous time in my life. Andrew was never afraid to give me straight answers to my tough questions which is a true mark of integrity. He is clearly at ease in the court environment and I believe his calm and measured demeanour went a long way to helping me secure the best result from my day in court. I would certainly recommend you approach Andrew if you need assistance.
"Andrew Tiedt was very professional and considerate to personal circumstances and gave sound advice that resulted in the best outcome possible. Highly recommended."
Unlawful Entry On Inclosed Lands (NSW)
In NSW it is an offence to enter property without permission and without a lawful reason. A person can be charged with unlawful entry on inclosed lands based on having walked, driven or otherwise made their way onto property that is surrounded by a fence, wall, canal, building or other structure that indicates the boundary of the property. The offence is contained in section 4 of the Inclosed Lands Protection Act 1901.
The provision states:
Any person who, without lawful excuse (proof of which lies on the person), enters into inclosed lands without the consent of the owner, occupier or person apparently in charge of those lands, or who remains on those lands after being requested by the owner, occupier or person apparently in charge of those lands to leave those lands, is liable to a penalty not exceeding:
What are prescribed premises?
Prescribed premises are schools, child care services, hospitals and nursing homes.
When is this offence committed?
Examples of unlawful entry onto inclosed lands include:
- Opening a gate and driving a car through a fenced off paddock because it’s quicker to get home that way;
- Walking through a primary school for no reason other than to look around;
- Climbing onto the balcony of a residential property;
- Remaining in a hospital after you’ve been directed to leave; and
- Opening a gate which has a sign stating “NO VISITORS” and walking up to the front door of a residence to drop off a pamphlet.
What must be proven?
To convict you of unlawful entry on inclosed lands the prosecution must prove each of the following matters beyond a reasonable doubt:
- That the accused entered land or remained on land without the consent of the owner; and
- The land was inclosed.
A person can validly defend this charge by arguing:
- That they did not enter the land or that they did not remain on the land after the consent of the owner was withdrawn;
- That the land was not inclosed; or
- That they had a lawful excuse for being on the land.
This offence is a summary offence and will be finalised in the NSW Local Court.
