Pina Colada (03-10-2013)
As I said I don't really care about the clutter. The bathroom is reasonably new and it's not just dirty grout it's generally dirty all over. He has been spoken to repeatedly but never breached because my PM has never suggested it - they are very slack but that is a whole new story. We finally seem to have a good PM so maybe we will get somewhere - she seems to think that they have been easy on him in the past because its a hard area to fill vacancies.
A property inspection is usually carried out fairly early on, so by that stage they should have a fair idea of what the tenant is like.

Huge breach of privacy IMO.
If photos are going to be taken, it needs to be made clear on the paperwork before the lease is signed.
HAve had photos taken in the last 2 rentals DH and i have been in at every inspection. The only areas that photos are taken though are bathrooms kitchen for sink and oven and garden. Real estate doesnt care about loungeroom.or bedrooms they are always clean but unless we'd put a hole in a wall they aren't worried its a brandnew townhouse so any damage that appears would be obviously our doing.

I would rather receive a photo and say "Why is there a wall of weeds where there was once a fence?", rather then receive a message 2 years later saying the fence fell down and then find out it was pulled down by a mass of weeds. Which by then I am an @sshole landlord who doesn't fix anything. Or "I see by the photos the side pavers are mouldy" rather than a tenant slipping over and injuring themselves before I hear about it IYKWIM.
I would love to see a database for LL's, which shows if they don't make repairs, they breach their end of the agreement etc. So when as a tenant you look at a property you can do a search for the LL. Unfortunately we only find out LL's are no good half way through a lease.
Wait am I missing something every rental we've ever had (roughly 7) every inspection we've had has had pictures of every room from different angles taken aswell as outside, yard etc etc.
Even our current one. Every 3 months on our inspection she pulls into the driveway picture, front door area picture, walkway to dining picture, kitchen 3 different pictures o the room plus a floor and sink picture etc. and same goes for dining 2 pictures and the bedrooms she take one from the door an walks through to take another from a different corner of the room. She has even asked me to open the built in wardrobes and she's taken pics of the inside of the wardrobes.
I just thought that was the norm?
