Dodgy Landlord

The move is going reasonably well. I have everything booked and i've started packing. Some stuff has already gone across to my new place thanks to friends with cars. Power and electricity and phone is all organised. Ditto mail redirection. I have a cleaner booked, for the first time i'm going to fork out to get my old place professionally cleaned.

Stef has been booked in to help get the last stuff down from the roof space.  Thanks Stef! 

My new place is spotless! It looks so good with new carpets and freshly painted walls. I'm so happy to be moving there.

A strange thing happened when I called Yarra Water to let them know I was moving out. I have spent over 4 years paying for water that I shouldn't have been paying for. The office downstairs and my apartment are on the same metre. When I moved in the landlord had transferred the whole lot to my name when in fact he is legally responsible for it. So not only have I been paying for the office downstairs, but i have been paying non-domestic rates and paying for my water when i'm not legally responsible for that either. The lovely water people are refunding me the whole amount and sending him a bill.

I haven't got my bond back yet so hears hoping he doesn't turn nasty. I have told him over the phone about my discussion with Yarra Water he said he'd discuss it with them. Fingers crossed he doesn't do anything stupid regarding my bond. We never completed a condition report so I don't think he'll be able to do much.

If it all goes bad, talk to Housing.

Good luck in the new place!

I will do that if it gets to that stage.

Thanks very much! :-)

Wish you'd told me earlier, the ute has been sitting in the driveway totally unused for almost two weeks now.

That's a new low for dodgy landlords...

Roll on new house, I say!
