THE REAL ESTATE AGENTS WHO RIP OFF TENANTS TO APPEASE THE LANDLORDS

We often hear about tenants who do the wrong thing by the landlords. It is just as bad with bad landlords and agents.

It has been the case recenly where the tenant had paid a months rent @ $430 per week as the bond & despite the premises being left immaculate was not refunded her bond on some pretentious claim by the agent in a fraudulant attempt to retain the bond of almost $2,000.This is not the real way to do business.

The 12 month lease was up and the agent was responsible for originally selling the relatively new house to the landlord from whom the tenant was leasing the premises.He sold them the house with a lot of problems and needed monies to fix these problems. On the pretext that the owners wanted to move in because of income tax implications of the income created from the rent was not prepared to offer another lease...

He kept the bond money to fix the rotten floor boards left by the builder,replaced the inferior internal door fittings and did extensive landscape upgrading that was in total disrepair when the tenant moved in earlier.

Once he had did these improvements he had let the home to another tenant & the owners did not move in.

He still to this day has retained the bond knowing full well that most tenants do not contest the issue of getting bonds returned as it becomes all too hard for the tenants.These bad real esate agents must be stamped out and be put out of business..more to come

**This is not the proper way or realway to treat good tenants by real estate agents
