Hi I’ve just moved into an older 1960’s house, which was advertised as recently renovated with dry space in the back beyond the laundry bar and garage at the front in the lower level. It’s not dry but saturated regularly with dirt piles flooding in with the water whenever it rains . We’ve found gaps in the walls and corners where we can see light coming through as a possible entry point the verandahs front and back when wet leak largely through to that lower level as well. We have consulted our real estate as several issues presented like painted shut doors and closets made unusable, rust in the bath, a shower floor sealed only to one side like it’s dissected in half so the other shows stains with use that are hard to budge. Paint over the bathroom tiles that washed off in using the shower to show old mould buildup has existed prior. No clothesline to hang clothes , and security awning that squeal and shudder like vibrating rotor blades in the wind, cupboard doors that fall off and latches that don’t exist or also fall off. The place presented much better for showing but on moving in more and more issues started showing themselves. ive fine what I can to cope with and request help with everything but the real estate is full of assurances but no actioning. They we’re getting someone in to evaluate the water issue but now email back that the owner had declined to waterproof. We stated we needed a clean home without plumbing , mould, or major issues due to child’s health condition being compromised severely by these issues in the past and yet nothing was disclosed to us. On lodging our entry report they withheld it for two months and crossed out Our written observations , harassing us to then sign their own Re-amended version? I doubt that was legal? What can we do to resolve the rank smell and damp under the house please ? We clean it up and it’s back with the Next rain event. Can we appeal to anyone to have the owner forced to fix this ? Or can we petition to end lease on these grounds please? We believe it must be a breach but need to know how to proceed legally as tenants please ? Hoping someone can help .
