    The saga continues or so it seems

    In hindsight, I wish had made a simple phone call to my landlord as soon as I heard about the eviction notice. I had always had his number as he wanted me to ring him direct with any problems etc so therefore I could've asked him if he could explain about the eviction notice I received. It...

    Complaints about RE Agents

    You know you can set up direct debit via a bank not the internet :) It's the same exact thing as "internet banking" IMO as you are still setting up a direct debit from one account to another ... also what about the other options of bank cheque and money orders ?? Why won't the PM accept those...

    Extra rent for pets.

    I know I'm only a tenant at this stage of the game yet when I become a landlord ... due to my experience as a tenant.. I will be pets allowed, no children. None the less, I can tell you that I jumped at the opportunity of a pet-friendly (with restrictions) property here on the Gold Coast...

    Complaints about RE Agents

    Get on this one PRONTO! As someone who is a tenant and went thru the exact thing in February this year. I'm still literally paying for that ****-up by that PM! I had a fabolous relationship with my landlord/lady. They didn't want me to move... and as soon as they had found out that the...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    For the curious, here are some of the reasons (well the ones I remembered) that was given in feedback to the PM about the unit.... thus making the unit it's own worst enemy: The only readily visible staircase is a spiral staircase at the "front" (or street end) of the property. People would...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    We ended up settling and thus not really actually going ahead with the whole tribunal. I'll be paying the 'debt' off in installments (an amount i know i can easily afford thus agreed to) over the course of 15 weeks. Why? Well, they showed me more information about the whole she-bang and thus...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    Well it is today at 2pm we all shall find out what happens! ;D I have been to the Tenant Advice and Advocacy Service locally. I've organised all paperwork on my end. I will (only if the PM does point out the advertisements as 'proof' first) point out that they only put in one advertisement...

    4 weeks and still no tenants

    I have only read the original post so please excuse my lateness. Be very cautious this time of year as it took a PM I was in dispute with (we settled) nearly half a year to find a tenant for a property in Surfers Paradise. It took them 20 weeks and 3 days to be exact when their "usual" average...

    For those interested, my hearing date is August 6th @ 2pm. So it will be awhile before we all find out (including me) as to the verdict. I've taken this all very seriously and will honour the verdict if it does not rule in my favour. I'm preparing for it tho' (naturally) I want to win.

    The saga continues or so it seems

    You're telling me. Hindsight! :D As for subletting the property, I honestly didn't think I could! Believe me, I would have taken on a tenant myself for only $150 or something per week if I could have done so temporarily... I just didn't know. I never moved in so the property was in the...

    I can see the humour in this...

    Yes it is property related yet I thought I would post it as I can see the humour in it as I'm childless yet have a pet... this is a pet friendly complex/gated community... this is why I would rather someone with a pet anyday over a child (no matter what is its age). At least the pet can be...

    Children

    Why I personally think pets are so much better to have as tenants than children. At least you can train pets (and/or find easy solutions) to stop mis-behaving. Children have something called "free will" LOL! I can see the humour in all of this...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    Please re-read my post in re what I submitted to the Small Claims Tribunal. I'm not going on about the duress and all that... I'm trying to say I'm not liable for any extra costs past May because I feel that the PM didn't do their job to mitigate loss as well as that the time the property was...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    Okay, got an email back from the PM that I'm disputing with .... Please find attached a copy of the list of advertising that was done trying to secure a tenant. The owner even agreed to drop the price of rent and offered 1 weeks free rent trying to help with securing a tenant. Under normal...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    I'm putting applications in to the Small Claims Court. I am seeking an order for the termination of my tenancy agreement backdated to [date]. I never moved in to the property due to my circumstances changing. I signed 'Break Lease' documentation on [date]. [Property Manager] wrote to me on...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    I did sign the Monaco St lease under duress as I had no intention (as did the actual owner of the Watson Esp. unit) of moving. I handed in my lease to re-new on the Watson Esp. unit before signing the Monaco St lease. I only signed the Monaco St unit under the mistaken impression that I only...

    Provide phone, yes/no ?

    I would provide one phone connection, that's it. I wouldn't provide the phone, just the connection as not everyone has the luxury of being able to "survive" without a landline (I use mine for broadband internet, local phone calls and faxing). If the tenant wants to install a second phone line...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    Basically, in the end, I just find it beyond ridiculous that in THIS MARKET it took the Monaco St PM 20 weeks and 3 days in total to find a new tenant! As somone who wants to get into property herself (thus become a landlady)... I know I wouldn't put up with my property being untenanted for a...

    The saga continues or so it seems

    Okay. I signed the lease under duress as the threat of eviction AT THE TIME when I signed the lease to the Monaco St property was looming over me. I literally only had days left (I signed the lease on a Sat and had to be out of the Watson Esp. property by Wed according to the eviction notice)...
