This is a long drawn out battle Ive been having with the real estate and I'll try and summarise it as best I can . Im a small mechanical repair shop in western Sydney . About 6 years ago I took a 3+2 year lease on a property . Prior to the agreement I noticed there was wiring that was hanging from the ceilings inside the warehouse and also there was only 4 gas operated lights for the main area . There was a lot of broken downlights and powerpoints . I was assured that these would be repaired . After moving in the premises was flooded , this became a constant issue . I was told that the drains were blocked and needed clearing . Eventually after flooding happened nearly a dozen times they told me there is a problem with the piping and the owner refused to fix it . It would require the old pipes to be removed and replaced with new ones , this was caused by the tree roots . To this day this still hasn't been fixed . The real estate agent changed and I was given the same story as before that the drains are blocked . I also still have leaks from the roof , one leak was directly leaking onto a power point which took nearly 2 years to get them to fix it . The other leaks are minor but there has been no attempt to fix them . After moving in the wiring in the building became an issue . Some of the power points didn't work , others when used blew fuses . During some storms the power would go out , often damaging the security system . They sent out 3 different electricians to quote the needed repairs but nothing was actually repaired . After about 2 1/2 years I asked to break the contract and leave . My lawyer sent a letter but it was rejected . From this point on they started complaining about the amount of vehicles in the car park . Yes I will admit I am always busy and have a lot of cars , but don't all workshops (I forgot to mention about a year ago another workshop opened up in the same unit complex and he has cars out the front as well !) . I received a letter of termination of contract while the contract was still valid . Nothing eventuated with this . So the big ending came just after Easter when I was locked out . No reason , apart from me being too busy and having too many cars there . I had to get my lawyer to allow me to enter the premises so I could get personal belongings . Its now been 2 1/2 months and Ive only had 2 weeks access to remove goods . In the meantime Ive had a car stolen , another damaged , the place was flooded while I didn't have access (my security was completely disabled about 2 weeks prior after flooding and an electrical storm ) . Insurance wont cover any of the flood damages because its so constant and they told me that its up to the real estate insurance to cover the damages . So to gain access Ive tried the tenancy tribunal and small business mediator and the owner has not co-operated . Is court my only option to gain access ? What rights do I actually have here as Ive had customers cars inside , some have decided to go to fair trading . Ive returned some at a loss and I have barely worked in this time , yet they are still demanding rent from me . My lawyer hasn't really been helpful either . Any help would be appreciated !
