    The previous tenants were unbelievably bad.

    The PM obviously missed the spaghetti stains on the kitchen blinds and the filthy showers when they moved out (for example) and just gave them back the bond

    We r interstate so we had no idea until we switched agents and they told us the property was very dirty.

    I've been a landlord and tenant myself. I have no idea how someone could let any property that they were residing in get that dirty.

    Anyways, we're going to get FIL to come in and change the globes. The cabinet light we r thinking of disconnecting all together.

    Default Landlord/tenancy question

    That is so frustrating. When we had an investment property I remember how picky the PM was before we rented it out and we thought that would be a sign they would keep the property well maintained. But after a number of hand overs (and we were interstate also, so took the RE word), the property declined. It is so upsetting when it was your home...

    To the renters out there- do you not change this yourselves?

    When we first moved interstate we rented and we changed all globes by ourselves!!

    What's the rule here!!??
    We change them ourselves, however if it's the landlords problem then it's up to the landlord who replaces them and where they are purchased. I pretty sure tenants can't buy/replace/fix things without authorisation and ask the landlord to pay for them!!

    For the cabinet light as its of no use id get it disabled permanently as in wires to the light ended off and popped back into the wall.
    Make sure you get it noted on your property file so it doesnt become an issue ever again
