    So the lovely PM have sent me a periodic inspection report that I reckon it looks crap (or I've been spoilt by my other PM's) and couple of things hidden in there requiring my attention:
    - broken kitchen window (how the fk is that my problem?)
    - gate posts a bit loose need a bit of attention (I probably can't sneak out of this one I suspect)
    - the tenant's old fella wants to remove the hedge around the back fence....

    It's the last one that really intrigues me. Is that really my problem or the tenants? Thanks.

    Fix the loose gate post. The rest are the tenant's issues.

    How did it get broken?

    Exactly what is broken? Glass? Closing mechanism? Something else?

    Generally, if it broke due to wear and tear, it is your responsibility.

    If the glass broke due to something the tenant did accidentally - I'm not exactly sure where the responsibility lies.

    Are they asking you to remove it? Or are they asking for permission for them to do it themselves? Sounds like the latter to me?

    Yep for sure, definitely a valid request.

    The pleb says it wasn't fixed. Her manager says it's been fixed at the tenants costs. Trying to get some clarity around what/how/where/when this happened and have it been fixed.

    Told the PM they can remove it at their cost. See what they come back with.
