Trader Disputes

View pages in this section

Disputes or complaints may arise between traders within it's markets over a number of issues, most commonly it relates to duplication of lines or goods being sold or the actions of another trader.

Traders should try to amicably and fairly resolve any issue with the other party before involving the market manager or his/her staff. The market manager will act as arbiter on disputes involving trader conflict and will where necessary make reference to the trader's user clause and the terms and conditions of occupation.

Where traders are not happy with an outcome from such intervention they may refer the matter to the Property Services section within Liberata for a second opinion.

A trader has the same rights as any one else as to making a formal complaint directly to the Council where they feel a complaint or issue has not been resolved fairly and quickly.
