    I like seeing photos of my property as it shows whether the property manager is doing their job (we pay enough for them to manage the property, if I get photos I know they are actually inspecting the property.) They never send photos of personal belongings anyway - just front and back yard, living area and bathroom.

    Not all landlords are rubbish. Just as unfortunately not all tenants are excellent. For every nightmare landlord story, there is a nightmare tenant story. Maybe they should devise a system to match up the crap landlords and tenants and match up the excellent landlords and tenants?!

    Basically they take photos of rooms to refer to when you have moved out. If there are (for example) major dints in carpet - they can see u had furniture there and it was wear and tear - not damage by you.
    I don't have any issues with what the real estates have to do. I don't have issues with our land lord taking 2 years to replace a skirting board damaged by water leak - which was not our fault.
    Fact of the matter is we need a roof over our heads and we have a young family. We can't afford our own home yet so set depend on our renting ATM and will do what it takes to keep a roof over my kids heads.

    I would be horrified if our pm did that. Thats our personal stuff, no one but us should have the right to see it unless we give permission.

    Our pm took a photo of water damage in the bathroom when a pipe in the roof sprung a leak but that was only to keep on record as something we didn't do for end of lease and to show the owner and see if they wanted it painted or leave it.
    None of our stuff was captured in the shot.

    Huge invasion of privacy.

    Unfortunately the Act has many many grey areas, and a lot of 'reasonable this' and 'reasonable that' and unless it is specifically mentioned in the Act or the lease the RTA can be a bit ambiguous with their response.

    I hope you get some sense x
