    If you can't trust a tenant not to wreck your property, then perhaps don't rent it out.

    Laws must be different in each state. I've never had photos taken. Had inspections 6 monthly. We haven't had one for over a year now.

My tenant looks to never clean the shower and I'm a bit cranky that at the end of his lease I'll need to completely regrout the shower because he hasn't been keeping it clean. It's on the market too so if we ever get any interest then prospective buyers will be seeing a dirty filthy house. Next time they inspect I'm going too.
    Is it an older bathroom?

    Our last rental was only 6 yrs old and no matter how much I bleached / scrubbed the shower it still looked dirty. Grout stains over time.

    I didn't say anything about the tenant. I personally have had previous issues with Property Managers not maintaining my property correctly and allowing it to fall into disrepair. Maintenance issues that are not the responsbility of the tenant, like mould on paths, leaves in gutters, peeling silastic in bathrooms and kitchens. A deck so rotten that before I heard about it, a person fell through it. That sort of thing.

    But a PM who is crap isn't likely to take photos of those sorts of things are they?

    Yes - I imagine landlords wanting photos are checking up on the PM every bit as much as the tenant. Actually, far more I suspect.

    When we rented a year or so ago we didn't have any inspections for 18 months. Yet the PM had been sending reports to the LLs (overseas) every quarter. Photos would have been extremely useful for them and goodness knows what we could have done to the place during the tenancy and the LL would have been none the wiser until we moved out.

    It's also much harder for a LL to ignore maintenance issues when there is photographic evidence of deterioration in things.



    'Oh the deck can't possibly need re-oiling we did it before they moved in'.

    *looks at photo*

    'Oh I see. Yes it does'.

    No, I don't think it even begins to compare.
    Generally you don't find out what the PM or LL is like until you are part way through your lease... most of the time you won't even interact with the LL so how would you know if they were a seasoned criminal or paedophile or some other sort of dodgy character?

    Not to mention being locked into a lease that is expensive to get out of early.

    When we moved house the real estate took photos to re lease it. I was fine with that until they kept using them each time they released it . I rang and complained and they were taken down
