I had a really dodgy agent.
I always kept my house clean, rent paid...
I received a letter saying I was getting kicked out because I hadn't paid rent. After battles with the real estate and scraping for $700 odd a few weeks after I paid I I got another letter saying the same thing. I spoke to someone else who said my rent was put up months ago and I hadn't been paying the extra that was where the $700 came from. I gave them more money then a few weeks later I get a call saying it was a mistake and got the money back..
He would turn up for inspections unannounced, when my then partner refused to let him in, he threatened him saying he wasn't even meant to be there because he wasn't on the lease.
Then the house was sold and I had to move. I've never had a problem getting rentals before, this time it got to the point I was homeless for 6 months and living in motels with my ASD daughter my friend ended up getting his real estate agent friend to ring up asking fur a reference and my old agent was telling them not to rent to me, I was dirty and never paid rent!! I lived in a duplex my neighbors were dirty and left rubbish but my side was completely clean!
I ended up moving 3 hours away as a last resort to get a house, told them I was moving out of a mates house do didn't use my last real estate and got the first house I applied for.
