Electronic Dispute Apps
These Dispute Apps targets the ELM Basic Service Delivery, and nothing else. For example, you cannot use these Apps for disputing your property tax, for example. It is used solely for disputing the basic service (e.g. Refuse Collection, Electricity Supply, Water and Sewerage). If you experience a repeated issue with the delivery (or non-delivery) of any of the basic services provided by the ELM, then you may use this dispute process on a monthly basis, until the service is restored.
Also, if you are a Landlord, with multiple properties, unless you have a separate ELM Account number for each property, you can still only submit a dispute once, for each of the services below, per account number, per month. For Landlords, that have more than one ELM account number, it is advisable to subscribe to this website with a different Username and email address (use Gmail to create free email accounts) for each ELM account.
Please make sure that you read the legislation applicable to these services first, as you will be required to confirm that you have done so in each form. And use this process responsibly, please.
Each Dispute you submit will automatically be sent via email to a number of ELM Officials, a copy to the ERPA Admin (for the record) and, of course, to you.
