That stinks!!! Aren't landlords and agents meant to give a few days written notice? I'd be texting him back and asking how far away he is. If he's coming to fix gutters though, does he have to come inside? Can't he just start fixing them?

Our landlords do this - they come over to fix things or have their friends/family do it because they are "good at maintenance". I don't think we've ever had a qualified person come to fix something in the three years we've lived in our current house. It drives me up the wall. We pay enough rent to have a qualified electrician/plumber/whatever come to the property when something breaks.
We've had things that have not been working since moving in, mostly lights. They've sent a relative to 'fix' it and it will work for about one day before being out of action again.
Every time they send someone around they call us to say that the grass needs watering (it hasn't been watered because THEIR sprinkler system doesn't bloody work because they won't send someone around to fix it), there were oil stains in driveway (whatever), or just other such nonsense. I hate living here, I feel like we have no privacy.

Benji, I'd be contacting your agent about this. You're entitled to have something fixed by a qualified tradie if you've given the landlord enough notice of it needing to be fixed - I'm positive there's a clause in my lease for this.
