    I sent a few emails to PM. No reply from them yet. No answer to my calls and voice messages at all.

    PM rate is greater than 10% as they charge me a fixed fee.

    Your PM sounds fairly *****, TBH.

    Not sure what area of QLD your IPs are in, but if it's in FNQ then drop me a PM and let me know who it is, please? I don't ever want to deal with them.....

    Of course, all instructions are in writing (emails)

    Let's see how PM will sort out this issue first. If I am not happy with outcome, I will let you know them.

    2 weeks ago, PM has prepared amended agreement but he is still unable to get tenants signed yet. He said that tenant is in hospital now. So, it took 3 weeks but PM cannot sort out amended agreement. I am too tired to chase him. He never keep me informed what is going until I call him. I decided to appoint a new PM.

    Completely right Property PRO, many agents will attempt to put clauses into their agreements that " reserve the right to increase rent" after 6 months however you must clearly indicate what this rent is to be and when it is from if this is during that lease period. Other wise your local tribunal will knock it on the head and agents caught trying to contract outside the legislation risk getting big fines!

    They overlooked the 2018 part - I've seen those mistakes before.
    I would just see the tenant in person and explain that we did not mean to sign an 18 month lease so can we just make an amendment here. You may be surprised that most tenants would say yes - it clearly was a mistake.

    The tenant CAN however hold the agency accountable to the lease - it IS binding.
    In that case the agency needs to compensate you for the mistake made in house.
