    Google your address and you might find a realestate.com.au listing of when it was available for rent which would show photos.

    What a moron real estate! Surely they have photos of the house before you lived there that they can use? They can't expect a photo ready show home when you're packing and moving? That's ridiculous.

    In Vic agents are required to give you written notice if they want to come around for any reason. They will often ask for verbal consent for things but you don't have to agree. Yes, you have until the 12th to get the house in a reasonable condition.

    Spoke to the R.E. office today, not that specific agent, and they asked if they could view the property this week with a request to take photos.
    I asked them to please put their request in writing, they did.
    After a bit of back and forth, we settled on Friday afternoon (no specific time, provided its after 1pm) as we have removalists in and out, and packing, over the next few days.
    Person I spoke to was very apologetic for the agent's behaviour, and says they do not expect a show-room condition house.
    Final inspection will be done on the 12th, in the morning, and I will hand over keys then too.

    If only the person I spoke to was the agent for the property... really would rather not deal with "her" again.

    when we were moving 2 years ago, the property manager started doing inspections to obviously start getting prospective new tenants interested. we explained we'd started packing boxes up and would try to have the place as presentable as possible. like you, all boxes were nearly taped up and stacked against a wall. she says that was perfectly fine.

    is there someone higher up in the office you could query her conduct with?

    Nope nothing, H found it on gumtree though and can't recall if there were photos.

    So, an update:

    On the 3rd (Tuesday) we settled on Friday as their 'take pics' day. The agent confirmed Thursday night at 8pm that she would be there at 1pm.
    On Friday evening, again at 8pm, she said she had arranged an inspection for that Saturday at 3pm. WTF?
    I rang her, said she had no right to just arrange an inspection and spoke to her manager. She was cautioned and we were apologised to.
    Sat rolls around, we are out all day (so wouldn't have agreed to an inspection) and get home around 9pm. Things are out of place, cupboard doors re open... nothing missing that we know of, but we didn't go through all the boxes.
    The inspection had gone ahead.... I was livid.
    I rang the owner and gave them an earful, demanded they come over right that minute- he did. He called the agent, she came over with her manager.
    She was fired on the spot, and the owner is moving to another agency.
    Too little too late- H called the police and we are discussing trespassing with them.

    Officially, we are still here until the 12th. Removalists are coming today, so we won't be able to go through boxes properly until the weekend. If anything is missing, so help her....

    WTF is wrong with people?!

    WTF??? I've had a couple of issues with agents before but nothing like that. Insane. It's good that the owner and agency took action.

    When you say an inspection, do you mean she hosted an open house for prospective tenants?
