  1. The Victorian form has been around for years, I’ve used it several times in the last 4 years to ask for information. I have even had some unexpected information included and some surveillance reports where the surveillance person mentions being on the property peeking through partially open blinds when we were not there!

  2. I recently have used this form before a conciliation hearing.
    They knew I need needed this info badly if I was to have any chance to succeed.
    They selectively sent me less than 1/4 than what was requested. That was a battle in itself. No explanations for where the rest of it was. Typical!!!!!!!!
    I think you would be better to send this request to VWA not your agent information team, (of course they are going to be helpful-NOT)
    I was initially quite hopeful but alas the system is still a lying sack of sh*t.
