    They didn't see an issue with doing it today, nor did the RE. So really why wouldn't they do it again?

    They were doing approved backyard maintenance work anyway and you hadn't moved in yet and they went inside, probably haven't seen their property in ages. The toilet thing aside, they weren't breaching your privacy or anything like that. I really can't see the big deal.

    I would write to your RE noting the incident today with a reminder that whilst you appreciate there may have been a misunderstanding with move in day but it's not to happen again. Then it's in writing and if you have further issues of them turning up outside of schedule inspections you can issue a breech.
    Oh right and where would I go considering I have to be out of my current place by mid next week? There is hardly time to find and apply for another property.
    What do I do with all of my possessions?
    Cough up removalist cost x 2?
    It's hardly an option, unfortunately.

    I also think the owners were just taking an opportunity to check through the house, most don't get to do this on a regular basis. They clearly were not aware of what time you were turning up I expect. I would have taken the opportunity to introduce myself and my family.

    The property manager should of simply apologised on their behalf - her '**** happens' comment is very unprofessional and very rude. I would be furious to receive that comment from a property manager.

    As for the wee, well as stupid as it sounds it could have been anybodies, I would often make a mental note to check toilets after I had done a viewing with families with kids in particular as they would often forget to flush - it may have been the owners forgetting to flush but 'shrugs' who knows??? But in any case - not nice and I wouldn't be thrilled to see it.

    I think it's been blown WAY out of proportion, I would take it no further, if you were my tenant and rang up with the list of demands you were spelling out I would think 'nut case' and go on high alert and would be bracing myself for a miserable tenancy.

    Hope the rest of the tenancy is harmonious.

    You can't leave after one incident, I'm sure you know enough about renting to know that.

    I'm simply advising of how to lay the foundation should the issue arise again. Sorry I thought I was being helpful as to how you could move forward, clearly not.

    I'd signed the lease at 9:30 this morning with every intention of starting to move in today. They knew that- they would be informed of such events.

    I went around to clean and move stuff in when they were there, inside the property.

    If they only went inside to use the toilet ( which is still not ok- they are public ones a 2 minute drive away) why did they have all the doors and blinds open? They were both strolling around inside the property.

    It's a big deal to me clearly! I'm a very private person and don't want my privacy invaded!
    How did they know I hadn't started moving in when they entered the property? Would it have been wrong then?

    They could have been there from 6am for all you know. You hadn't started moving in... there was nothing of yours in there... they did not invade your privacy.

    What mokeybear said about being on alert if a new tenant went in guns blazing was exactly why I (and others) tried to tell you thay it would be best to leave it be. No wonder your previous landlords give you grief!

    Lol

    Dr Phil would call her ' a right fighter' honestly, it's too knackering being a right fighter.

    Life's too short.

    They were there after I signed the lease! I had to give permission for them to tend to the courtyard. I was told they would not be entering the property as there was no need!

    You have no idea of my relationships with previous LL's. In my ideal world, I keep to myself and they keep to themselves. I've never even interacted with my current LL. I know he is a vile person as he refuses to spend a single cent on this property... won't even cough up all of $8 for a working smoke alarm.

    The property had been vacant for about 2 months prior. I was the only one to inspect it 3 weeks ago. I was approved for it the day after. The toilet looked clean during that inspection, so was clearly used today!

    Yep, an apology should have been given and some sort of confirmation that it won't happen again! Maybe I wouldn't be so p!ssed off if this had of actually occured!

    How exactly did I call up with a list of demands? I called up stating that the owners were in the property! Big difference there!
