Recently moved to Tassie and the managing agency is a cowboy outfit. In short- Unauthorised access by agents contractor. NO NOTICE given to tenant verbally or written. Walked in on tenant naked and Agency unapologetic. I am the tenant. In detail- First Thursday after moving in: Tenant- Pest control needed as property has ticks. Agent- The pesty will call you to arrange a day as we prefer you deal with them directly. Should we give them keys? Tenant- No do not release keys. I want to be home when they are here as pets will need minding. Agent- Ok they will call you to arrange for a day and time. Tenant received NO CALL from the pesty or the agent. No phone, email or post to suggest a day or time.No notice EVER informing a day or even a week for maintenance. Monday- Pesty enters property unlocking with Agency keys straight into the living room. Tenant semi-naked breastfeeding the newborn. Tenant mortified, scarred and very upset at being walked in on seminaked. Pesty apologetic. He was told by agency its end of lease spray at a vacant property. So tenant writes to the Property manager annoyed about unauthorised access and enquiring why no notice was given to tenant? Director replies saying they "expect" a vacant house if maintenance is requested and "thought" nobody will be home. Tenant- "You cant expect a vacant house without informing tenant to vacate. And that is precisely what notice of entry is for. You must Use that in future or atleast inform tenant that someone intends to access the property." Over the next 4 emails back and forth this director did not admit their fault, refused to apologise for unauthorised access and especially for such a sensitive issue. So not only does this agency not believe in notice of entry but also assume tenant must vacate property indefinitely upon requesting any maintenance. Also tenants should keep the agency informed of all the occupants whereabouts? I'm baffled! This old man must be smoking some very strong stuff to be so deluded and out of line. How is such behaviour ok down here?? I've heard such stories from other people here too. We love Tassie but must say the people down here are strange and a law unto themselves. We need some beautiful friendly mainlanders down here..especially cheery queenslanders.
