I'm a tenant in a small apartment in Melbourne that has thin and old windows. Two weeks ago, a large crack appeared in the glass door that opens onto the balcony. It isn't broken or shattered (yet). I don't know what caused it, but suspect it's from either a storm, or the venetian blinds knocking against the window when I closed them. I've reported the damage to the REA but I haven't heard anything about who is responsible for paying or when it will be fixed. I don't mind paying if it's deemed to be my fault but as a tenant I don't feel comfortable organising repairs without permission from the REA/landlord. If the landlord/REA continue to ignore my emails, am I obliged to keep following up the repair requests until it's fixed, or am I allowed to leave it? I'm not bothered by the window but more concerned more about my duties as a tenant. Don't want to lose my bond in the future because I left a problem unresolved.
