    @DT75 I've received a notice on a previous property about the lawn being a bit long. I believe the owner drove by and told the re, who then told us.

    I think it's a bit harsh to mention it at this time of the year - the lawn grows ridiculously fast, people are often away on holidays, weather is all over the place. Oh the joys of renting :/

    This is an area that they would have to come onto the property to see.

    Oh ok - yes obviously they have complained about the lawn when they entered illegally!

    I'm a landlord and no way would I do this - I get nervous about contacting my tenant directly (I pay a property manager) when I need to ask them if it's ok for the pest man to come.

    What a nerve they have reporting on that when they were on the property without consent! Not cool

    That's terrible behaviour on the landlords part and the real estate should have put them back in their box. I'm a landlord and would never dream of doing such a thing. My tenants pay me and therefore I consider them to be my clients and treat them with the respect that they deserve. I would look to move elsewhere when your lease is up.

    We only just moved in and have put over $10000 into the place as we want to stay here at least 5 years. No way will we be moving.

    I rang the agent today to express my concerns with both the landlord and them. She tried to wave it off with an apology but I said that I would be contacting NSW tenancy as I am not ok with how things have repeatedly been handled. She got VERY nervous.
    I then explained that we actually have a gardener who comes once a fortnight but has been unable to do so for a while.

    That's a lot of money to spend at a rental! What if the owners don't extend your lease...?

    Well we are at the beginning of a 2 year one. So even that is manageable.

    What did you spend $10k on? The owners should be loving you!
