    If you are in Newcastle, it might be worth contacting the tenancy advocacy service. I've spoken to Dawn about issues before and she has been really helpful.

    thanks
    My real estate is really crummy - took three weeks before they got back to us about our leaky tap, then another couple weeks before someone came around.
    We were also waiting well over a month before our main toilet got fixed. (Thank god we have two lol).

    Can I ask, is there any reason why you don't have a sink plunger thingy or gone and bought some draino? I realise it's the RE's responsibility but from a hassle perspective, I'd be trying either or both of those things first to unblock a sink. Even a good dose of bleach can often unblock sinks if what is blocking it up is organic matter. Just pour some in the sink and let it sit there.

    They might need to blast the drains then. That happened at my last place. It wasn't until sh!t quite literally started coming up through the laudry floor that they decided to get a plumber out.

    The plunger just needs to create a seal, so you just place it over the plug hole and push up and down.

    I find eucalyptus oil and boiling water work really well.

    Because it's not an urgent matter there technically is no time frame, however how long ago did you put the request in writing? Mainly with the leaking tap - simply because in nsw it's legislation that to pay for water usage you shouldn't have any leaking taps on property. So if you send them a letter pointing out how long you've been waiting for them to fix the leak and that you'd like some compensation for the wasted water then you might get some money off your next water bill. Not a huge amount, but something... Might also speed them up if they're the ones dragging the chain. Chances are it's that the plumber is booked solid though.
