The South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT) is a state tribunal that helps people in South Australia to resolve issues within specific areas of law, either through agreement at a conference, conciliation or mediation, or through a decision of the Tribunal at hearing. SACAT also conducts reviews of Government decisions.
SACAT strives to be accessible and responsive to user needs, and deals with cases in a large range of areas (or jurisdictions). Specifically, SACAT is the place to bring - certain civil law disputes or applications (landlord / tenant relationships), guardianship and administration, mental health and consent to treatment - administrative law disputes or issues, reviews of certain Government decisions (public or community housing decisions, land valuation decisions).
SACAT has a strong emphasis on alternative dispute resolution, using a range of approaches to achieve efficient and fair solutions to disputes and reviews.
