Hi Everyone, Just need some advice please. I recently signed a lease on a granny flat in a suburb within Brisbane City Council. The landlord has done a bit of a dodgy job on the renovations in the place, the floorboards are not laid correctly and have gaps in them, I'm pretty sure the smoke alarm is a cheap one from bunnings and not hard wired, and after reading the fire legislation, I'm fairly certain the smoke alarm is in the wrong spot as it's right next to a ceiling fan. The 'driveway' at the side of his house where I walk up to enter the building is uneven and is strewn with building material, old boxes etc. Not exactly safe. My landlord did his own lease even though I suggested getting the forms from the Residential Tenancy Association. I have paid him $920 in bond, and after several times asking him to lodge the bond with the RTA, which he originally agreed to, he hasn't done it and now ignores any texts I send him regarding it. I also have never seen an entry condition report. I started to get a bit sus about it all and I have a friend who suggested that maybe he doesn't have building approval, and after talking to the council, I've found out that he only has approval for a 'shed with a bathroom extension'. Does anyone know what the penalty is (to the landlord) for not getting approval? Will I get kicked out? I'm thinking of moving out and may need to use this info in order to get my bond back. Any advice you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help! Amanda.
