I recently lost a friend in a tragic accident. Believe it or not, one of the worst things to deal with (yes surprisingly for Canberra), was the rental property agent.
I wanted to spare the family from what I know would come…
who are these people?
- — just three days after my friends passing, I was issued with the final vacate notice. It contained the statement ‘unfortunately business is business’ in reference to people being showed through the property BEFORE the belongings being removed and in relation to the amount of unpaid rent (1.5 weeks). I wonder how prospective tenants would have felt about that, if they’d known?
— the outstanding rent was calculated at 21 days (the 21 day notice period) – not even from the date of the accident but the from the day I notified them of the passing.
— the property agent tried to contact my friend’s family just days after his passing, when they were in the middle of funeral arrangements
