really pi##ed off

May 31st, 2020 at 01:02 pm

So not sure if any of you actually read my post much but we have been telling the landlord/agent that the roof has had dripping noises in it and we can see discoloration on the they said the roofer would contact us...he hasn't yet and we have high winds and plenty of rain today....well tonight we have water running down the wall, i have called 2 cell numbers we have for them and no answer no emergency numbers and i have to say I am really freakin annoyed and let them know about it...we have so much rain due this it is winter here and if they don't call me early they will be getting a not so pleasant phone call in the morning....seriously the roof is all wet in one we have had to move stuff...hopefully the roof won't cave tonight is going to be rough....and we don't know what needs to be done to it...we don't know if there is mould there..not what we need in flu season and hubby going through treatment...just when things were going good.

On another note its pay week and our daughter updated her car...she was going to wait but it big enough for when she has kids in a couple years (yes she is a planner) and she paid cash for it so all good!!

    That is really unacceptable. I'm not sure how landlord/tenant laws work in Australia, but do you have any legal recourse, like withholding rent until the issue is fixed? I know that won't help the immediate problem though. Can you contact a handyman of some sort to at least put a tarp on the roof? I'm sorry you are having to deal with this.

    Is it possible to call someone yourself? Bill the landlord, take off rent, or sue in court for reimbursement. It is shocking how negligent they seem to be. Or would it be better to make plans to move, possibly paying to get out of lease early? Contact an attorney for advice. Sometimes just letting them know you are pursuing this through legal channels can get action.

    We can take them to tenancy tribunal but you have to firat give them a date that they need to have it fixed by, no we can't withhold rent or get someone to fix it without their approval or we have to pay for is a pain

    CCF we were looking at moving but didn't really want to move again until we bought a house which is still about a year away...but we may have to change that is expensive to move and with hubby having treatment, it is now winter here and flu season not what we want to do...but will see what they say in the morning...I just hate owners that don't take care of their investments...especially when we pay so much in rent...and I'm not paying extra to get out of the lease early for their negligence

    If you go through tenancy tribunal, I think you should take photos of the leaks and the damages that they have done to the house and your belongings.

    I forgot to also say that mold can be hazardous to health depending on the kind. Is there any avenue you have through a health department, etc.?

    Definitely as well as giving them an unpleasant phone call give the Tenancy Union another call and let them know that not only is it unacceptable because it should be an urgent repair but you have a husband having cancer treatments - this could be the difference between him recovering or not because his immunity is so compromised. Do you have to use that tradesperson? Are there options for you to contact another one and have the bill sent to the landlord?
