    Now that I have your attention, this is sadly true.

    A friend of mine is being threatened by a "psychotic" tenant in her apartment block. I believe she called the police over the weekend.

    She has asked if I have access to RP data so she can notify the owner, and sure this is one option (anyone care to share the owners name?)

    Or, better yet, how do we find the managing agent? If she gives me the address Ill do a search on real-estate.com.au.. .

    I really feel for her, she is a lovely young girl in the allied health profession. She has sent me this:

    "Body Corporate don't have any contact details.... Had to call police twice last night as she alternated between whispering through my keyhole that she'd kill me, and asking her alter ego for permission to slice my face open."

    Other than RP Data or title search if you Google the address any old listings of the property for rent might come up with the agents name.
    When I Google one of my places the listing for rent still appears nearly 10 years later.

    I've done this already, but the listing predates the buildings opening date. I've given her the agency name already

    I would advise her to be recording every single incident in her phone, now.

    Obvious point but I'd be pushing the police first if she's that psycho. The tenancy act route will be a bit more long winded and not really designed to address potentially life threatening situations. Police will pass on to relevant agencies if necessary.

    Certainly some weirdos out there.

    Got to have an AVO on this one.

    Or get someone to have a stern talking to this tenant.....or a good bashing.

    Sounds like there might be a serious mental health issue here. I don't know why the police wouldn't march her off to the ED

    Yep, your neighbour could ring local mental health intake team if the police aren't taking it seriously. I'd be doing that.

    Why aren't the police taking it seriously? Does she not want to make charges? She has to do this. Not much the landlord can do about it.

    I think getting her evicted would not negate the fact that the psychotic person knows where she lives. That will be hellish situation for someone to feel unsafe in their own home.

    @Adele has a very good point.
    I personally would look at moving (if that is an option).

    i've told her she needs to move.

    She has told me more, and it is exceptionally scary. She thought there was more than one person until she realised that there are multiple personas with different voices.

    She has recorded and logged most things, and her PM is aware.

    Poor girl. How scary

    My house got broken into once, back then I was just living with my younger sister. (We were 17 and 15) We were so scared that my friends had to move in with us. The police found our kitchen knives dumped outside our window, thankfully we were not home at the time. I don't think that this is as scary as your friend's situation though, as I'm sure the robbers were not after our lives.

    you poor thing, that is awful to have to go through as a teen.

    Bran - really feel for your friend. Best to move out.

    I would advise her to get out of there tonight. Does this psycho know her name or workplace? And why has she targeted your friend? If it is just that she is in the same complex and nothing more then I'd be gone tonight.

    Can she try google the address of the tenant? Sometimes the history of the listing is still there.

    Hope it is solved soon... Did the tenant only terrorised her?

    Agree totally. Be it serious mental health issue or just good old substance abuse I'd get her out asap if it was my daughter or friend, regardless of cost or inconvenience. In life I believe it's important to choose your battles - and this is one is I'd want to steer way clear of.
