Hi, Of course in a perfect world, we'll have a world where everything works in harmony with one another and everyone does the right thing, but that's a fallacy. Anyway, ever since I've had a new property manager looking after my IPs due to the previous property manager being away on mat leave, been experiencing a greater number of maintenance requests than usual. Maybe it's my bad luck and just a sheer luck of the draw. I do request for two quotes for a job unless it's something minor and the amount is small. I do know that friend who do rent out in the Northern beaches tells me that their managing agent excessively requests for things to be fixed on the landlord and makes it sound like it's tenant requested. It makes it hard when you can't exactly go to the home and pictures are not really telling you anything but happy to brainstorm with people on other possible strategies and it may be that it's just a bad run with maintenance requests for me!
