That's not on. Ok they didn't know what time today you signed and got keys, but surely they could of dealt with stuff before today? If the gardens/house weren't ready to be moved into knowing you wanted to sign they should have told RE "keys can't be picked up until Tuesday as the garden and repairs are being undertaken". But then they couldn't charge rent for those 2 days It's incidences like this that make tenants feel railroaded and with no rights.
Our LL hardly ever fixes *anything*. But the very rare time he does, he comes around, WITH NO NOTICE, and follows the tradie around.

I'm a land lord and I have keys too all my properties. However, I would never just let myself in.
I fail to see what the big deal is here. You knew they were at the property doing yard work, using the toilet is hardly a breach of your privacy (although not flushing is icky).
It would have been a great opportunity to build a rapport with the LLs. From time to time I request inspections on my properties (generally after major repairs) and I love it when the tenants are there. It's a great opportunity to get a feel for the people living in my place. Those brief encounters can help if issues arise. I'm more flexible with personable and good tenants than ones who complain about everything and expect a lot but give little back.
Yes you are renting and have a right to quiet enjoyment but its their place not yours.

The thing is though as an owner if u want the right to enter your property you own don't rent it out even if it is to use the toilet. They know the rules and clearer broke them regardless how minor. We are very accommodating tenants and recently got railroaded with a major change to the property with only a months notice the only reason we don't move is we r building and awaiting to move in there. Owners have to understand if they rent it out then some of the rights to the property are gone don't like it don't invest in property

Although it may not be the correct procedure, I wouldn't find an issue with that as you hadn't started moving in yet. It actually would have been the perfect opportunity to introduce yourself to the LLs and put a positive memory in their minds. I wouldn't take it any further, just be aware for the future that they have access.
As for the condition report, that's not okay. Write down as much as you can see (especially walls and floors) before the furniture goes in.

You are right, she has a right to quiet enjoyment, which includes not having the LL's access the property without approval or notice to dirty the toilet.
Despite what LL's like to make out - that they are doing the renter a favour, it's a symbiotic relationship. The LL makes a lot of money if they own outright or has their mortgage paid for them, while the renter gets somewhere to live. I wonder if the OP broke her end of the TA would you be saying get over it?

The inspection report I don't think is on. Get hold of the RE first thing Monday and chase that one.

I said ok to the owners doing maintenance to the tiny court yard outside. Both owners were casually strolling around the inside of the property for absolutely no reason!
They had no right to use my elecricity or water either as I am liable for it all from today!
I wonder if the police would do anything as they have essentially broken the law and trespassed!
Entry condition report has since been dumped at the back door so I think the RE relises the stuff up to some extent!
