Let me know what you think of my comment thoughts!
After our trouble with Friedlaenders Real Estate, we needed help with what we should do. As a tenant in Victoria where can you turn? This is the first post in a series that I will look at where you can turn to and who can help you. If you have any other ideas, let me know.
Well the first place I looked and most helpful are the Tenant Union of Victoria. They are there to help you find your rights and deal with problem Real Estate Companies. They gave us some great advice in relation to our rights both when Friedlaenders claimed that we would get no rent back and when we had the gas problem that we had.
You can find them at their Web Site: http://www.tuv.org.au/ or on the phone at (03) 9416 2577.
They are no nonsense and straight to the point. Their phone line is very busy so be patient.
More to come later
We are setting up this blog to comment on the poor treatment we received from Friedlaenders Real Estate (of Elwood, Victoria, Australia) when trying to recover our bond and trying to get them to meet there responsibilities in a matter over a Hot water leak that cost us extra money on our gas bill.
The performance on the matter has been (in my opinion) poor to say it nicely. You will hear some classic cases of just treating your customer like crap and just not understanding customer service.
Any way, more to come later. Sign up for the RSS feed if you want to get updated on the details of this case and of others people report to me.
PS. If you have a story you want to tell of FriedLaenders or any other Real Estate agent, let me know and I will publish it (if appropriate). For that matter, if you have a good story, let me know that as well.
