    House Maintenance, Whos Responsibility

    Check to ensure gutters are full of leaves etc and not just overflowing in heavy rain. Your tenants maybe thinking that they are reporting a potential problem to the PM and not realise that overflowing gutters occur in heavy rain. Ask PM to check with tenants to clarify. Regards Sheryn

    We were the odds ones out today at Mullumbimby

    No we didn't sample the product. Probably should have written 'vibe' instead of 'feeling' in OP. As hubby said he now knows where old hippies and old cars go... Bottom line the people seems happy, relaxed and not stressed. Most carried their produce around in a cardboard box or recycable...

    We were the odds ones out today at Mullumbimby

    Today we drove over to Mullumbimby to have a look as it has been a long time since we have visited the place and found we were the odds ones - how we dressed as we do not dress in alternative, hippy or natural fibre etc. Funny feeling as we wandered the town streets, very laid back...

    duplex or triplex completion time

    Sesster Councils can hold you up big time when you are seeking approval (5 months is the longest delayed approval for us then it was Christmas time) so 18 months is not unrealistic. Sheryn

    My fixed price contract was only fixed until the builder wanted more

    Annoying PM

    Rich Don't panic as this may well be a small teething & communication issue, some agencies send out statements mid month or end of month. If your PM is involved in a court case then their workload would be busier this week. Let us know what the statement says! Sheryn
