I have just been evicted from a house the real estate claim from cleaning & hygiene issues. We were given 2 weeks to vacate premises. Only managed to secure another house 4 days before the eviction date, didnt have enough time to clean anything & real estate would not give me a further extension. Today I had a meeting with the real estate & they said I have 2 options rectify issue by cleaning (have given me 2 days to do so) then it would be reassessed on Monday or it goes to Tenancy Tribunal, I will be black listed also my income will be garnished 80% to cover the costs for repairs/cleaning that exceeds my bond. I am leaning more towards letting them take the matter to the tribunal, as the attitude I have been getting it seems like no matter how much I go in & clean they are going to nitpick & they are going to send cleaners in, arrange for trash removal & carpet cleaning so its a waste of time & money even bothering with it.
Question is can they really garnish 80% of my income?
Would they garnish 80% from both my husbands & I income or 40/40?
Surely this amount is excessive, we wouldnt be able to afford to live
