It doesn’t take long to find a horror story about renting a property. Look in the right place and you find plenty. Better yet, get out and about and have a chat with as many tenants as you can and you can almost guarantee that you’ll hear some outrageous stories about the way they were treated by their local property manager.
Recently, we tried to get in touch with some of our landlords...
Unfortunately, no matter how hard we tried we couldn’t. Their phones rang and rang and their emails weren’t checked.
It turns out our landlords were overseas, dodging taxes and sitting on a beach somewhere counting their money.
Apparently, there was quite a lot of money to count so it took a long time for them to get back to us.
