I want to facilitate a discussion around a recent moulding issue I had with my investment property. I want some pointers on whether what I've done was the right choice and also inform others who face this in the future. My property stands three levels floor above ground, in which the lower ground floor holds the garage and a lounge room, with main entrance to the property accessed from the first ground. All bedrooms are located above this lower ground floor. Before I put the property on market, I carried out refurbishments to it. There was one particular corner in the lower ground floor which moulding occurred and this was acknowledged in an inspection report. At the time, my PM and I both agreed the moulding was not a significant issue, as it was at the lower ground and no bedrooms were there, and can be fixed later down the track. Prior to moving in, the tenant inspected the property and was fine with it and moved in. 4 months later, they started complaining about the moulding despite viewing the inspection report. I had a look at the pictures they sent and it was still the same size originally. I informed them that this would be repaired once christmas period is over. Fast track to January 2020. I was organising works for the moulding. I received an angry email from the tenant claiming the moulding has damaged their goods and impacted their children and demanded I release them from the lease, or I'd be taken to tribunal, regardless on whether I repaired the mould. My PM advised me to release them from the lease to avoid a trial. I did just that and the tenant will be moving in 2 weeks. Based on what I've said. Was there anything which I should have done to avoid this situation? and was releasing them from the lease a good decision? Also, can I claim loss of rent from my insurance regarding my situation? Hope anyone who is experienced out there can advise. Many thanks.
