Am I the only tenant that is uncomfortable with general photos being sent to the owner? I fail to see why they would need photos of our personal belongings to ensure the property is being maintained. Isn't that covered by the periodic inspection report? Which I am now no longer getting a copy of because they have switched from carbon paper to an iPad, it's not hard to CC it to me is it? I can understand photos of items needing attention, but my sparkly clean sink with some dishes sitting inside it, a photo of my childrens bedroom (also clean with a few toys on the floor..it is school holidays!) and the laundry with a pile of dirty washing by the machine? In my opinion these things are not unreasonable and do not require the owner to have photographic 'evidence' (for lack of a better word).
FWIW I have called the Dept of Commerce and there is no current legislation regarding photos. And no we are not required to have a copy of the report which is silly..I use them as part of my references when we have to move!
I hate renting
