Hi Forum, I just received a email from my PM saying that I need to pay tradies for work they did on my unit 4 months ago. The neighbours washing machine overflowed and water poured into my unit and flooded the carpet. My PM called in a carpet cleaner to steam clean the carpets and dry them. Apparently, the tenants next door are contesting payment and taking the matter VCAT. Their agent claims that I should pay and then get reimbursed by VCAT once the matter has been settled or that the landlord from next door will repay me if they win at VCAT. As our neighbours were responsible my intital reaction is why should I have to pay? My agent says I have no choice.
