Hi Forumites, Just wanted some opinions: Settled on a house about 2 months ago. Ex-houso highset property in Moreton Bay Council region. Tenants have been in there for a few weeks and all is well (for now). PM, however, is pushing to carry out repairs (approx $2k) on front & rear external stairs - installing 3 additional rails to each set as it may be considered 'unsafe' in its current condition. What I don't get is QLD Housing has been renting this thing out since the dawn of time and they didn't have an issue with the handrails, so why should I? Is the PM looking out for my best interests or just trying to cover their backside? If I refused to carry out the repairs what am I liable for if the tenant has an injury on my property? Is there any type of insurance I can take out to cover against this? Any help is appreciated!
