Hello Paddocks Press Fan,

Welcome to the new and improved Paddocks Press!

We are very excited to introduce a video each month from one of our knowledgable team members on an interesting case study. This month, Nicole explains what happened with the Laguna Ridge Scheme v Dorse court case covering the trustees refusal to keep pets. 

We have many more developments happening, so be sure to keep your ears to the ground and your eyes on our websites.

All the best,

P.S. In case you forgot, we also recently launched 1-day face-to-face workshops, with the first one happening on Wednesday, 21 October 2015, and this will cover Sectional Title Trustee Training - learn more.
