Northern Territory Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NTCAT)

Are you dissatisfied with a decision about made by a government or regulatory body? You may be able to apply for a review of the decision to the Northern Territory Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NTCAT), which was introduced in the Territory in October 2014.

The types of decisions that can be reviewed include those about:

  • marriage registration
  • a dispute under the Building Act
  • a dispute about a residential tenancy
  • a dispute about the construction or repair of a fence
