we've had several landlords butt in and sabotage what we are doing in property management over the years but this one today has to take the cake. New landlord had asked us to list and advertise a Northern suburb property. All good. No keys for property so for the first couple of weeks he asked me to break in using a screwdriver to jammy open a window to show people through. All good as long as I wasn't wearing a skirt and high heels - makes it a bit awkward. It also meant that I had to turn up to inspections 30 minutes earlier to ensure no prospective tenants were there. Once in, I opened the front door from inside to allow tenants through. I thought that was a bit crazy, I eventually got keys. However this morning I got a call from this landlord to tell me that he met some people who want to rent the property - he negotiated $20 cheaper than what I'm advertising for and get this - they now have the keys and have moved in. He has taken, no bond, no upfront 2 week rent payment, no names or details of tenants. I can't even call them. I drove down there - no one home so need to try again tomorrow. In effect, he put squatters in his property and expects his PM to turn them into tenants. His instructions - go and sign them up now. Face palm. Wish me luck with this one. Omfg!
