This is my 2nd review for our rental period, a final update before we move out in November. Beware the owner and realty company that gables this home. In the last month of our lease, a frw things have cropped up.

The fences are broken and continue to break due to tree roots. Our neighbour has expressed his concern multiple times to us and the realtor over the months and we have been told "the owner doesn't want to do anything, so there's nothing that will be done" by our realtor, Johan Prior. Expect that response a lot.

We paid 380 per week for this house and are now moving into a newly renovated home, 1 block away, for less. If you are looking to rent this home, be prepared to take it as it is, or get your requests for change in writing and signed by the owner prior to signing any lease, because I promise you nothing will be done otherwise.

The retaining wall the surrounds the front of the property was coming away, getting council interest (they blocked the path and put cones up warning pedestrians), however this was short lived as the son of the owner (Luke Aveling, 23yo working for his father's company) took it upon himself to come, unannounced to our home and pull the wall down, dumping bricks onto our front yard and leaving them there. The reason I know this is because our neighbour stopped him and asked him who he was and what he was doing (he happily keeps an eye out for people on our property as this isn't the first time we have had random people without our consent go to our home). Luke Aveling happily told our neighbour that his father had no intention of slinging anything on this house because it would be torn down in a couple of years, so why spend a single cent on it? When we advised the realtor of This, she was not impressed, but did nothing to console us or organise someone to collect the rubble left in the yard.

3 days ago we also had a plumber out. Originally we were dealing with Diamond Plumbing, however this was a new company so I can't recall the name. This plumber told us that he didn't foresee the situation with the plumbing getting better until the trees were removed. He said "I guarantee I will be back here every 4-8 weeks so long as there are trees in this yard".

Lastly, when I called to let the realtor know that we were terminating our lease (which I also emailed and heard nothing back) I was promptly yelled at for asking the realtor to visit the property "early" - still 4 weeks away from today - so that I could come back on the weekend after her visit to clean if needed. She suggested that I consider her schedule might be more important, to which I asked how much notice she required for a 1 hour review. In the end, after reminding her of the terrible time we have had here, she grumpily agreed to my request, but not before she spoke to me like crap.

I would like to say "rent this house", but if I am honest, I will say stay away. Far away. And if you want more information about this home, talk to the neighbour - he will tell you what you're really getting into if this post doesn't paint enough of a picture...

Good luck on finding your future home.

House is big, which is good, however there is no aircon, making summer unbearably hot and winter cold. You might want to invest in a prtoable machine - but with such big spaces, it's probably too costly.

Previous tenants have removed carpets from bedrooms which means that holes in floorboards, making it drafty and easy for mice, cockroaches and ants to find their way in (ants are definitely the worst).

The backyard has a sinkhole and there are several large trees (20m+) that we had a tree-lopper advise were not pruned enough and could damage the house in a storm, including one entirely dead tree, which he said was a "widow-maker".

The backyard, despite our best efforts, has bamboo growing in the back corner, which damages the fences dividing the properties between us and our neighbours. Previous tenants have left their rubbish hidden in the bamboo, including broken metal, bricks, tiles and plenty of other things - most of which we have stored in the shed.

There are no gutters, partially thanks to our real estate agent, who left the property in disrepair for so long that the build up of tree droppings left in the gutters made them rust completely.

We had plumbers out every 8-12 weeks over the corse of 2 years to fix clogged drains from tree roots - which is why a tree lopper was brought in for a quote (his advice was to remove the trees for safety, however the owners - property development company - aren't interested in listening to expert opinion). We have to live through a toilet that overflowed if we used our washing machine, shower drains that didnt drain and similar issues in the kitchen. Each time we get a plumber out, we are told "you shouldn't have any more problems" - which is of course, not true.

Everything about this house is fixable- however the real estate company's motives are questionable at best and the property development company that owns the house and land are only going to knock it down to build units ( when looking on Google, you can see that the land has been subdivided) - so they aren't interested in doing anything.
