I was at a property yesterday showing a couple through a unit I have listed. This little unit has an old box A/C unit and the tenant asked if it was working. Unfortunately there hasn't been power since I took it on, but it's getting connected tomorrow. I said this to the tenant and explained that the electrical appliances will be checked over then and repaired if necessary. The tenant then was asking if it will be "upgraded". I explained that given the market the owner will be renting the unit for the first tenancy and will not be doing any upgrades until the next time around as it's not viable for them to be renovating right now. The response?! "OH! They're negatively gearing. That's what it is. They can't spend any money in the first 12 months if they want negative gearing!" I responded by saying that's not how negative gearing works, which they ignored and were going on about all these "rich" landlords. Later on in the conversation they were telling me about how they earned too much money for Centrelink, so removed one person from the lease to give to Centrelink and added them back on later... What's some funny things you've heard? Not just limiting this to tenants either!
