A win for the good guys!

I want to thank the Landlord involved in my issue. Every dealing I had with them (they know who they are) has been outstanding. Our VCAT order of payment hadn’t been paid but within a week of informing them directly via a letter (I can’t be sure that they were informed by Friedlaenders in the past about this (surely they would of)) was paid. A cheque arrived yesterday and we will be banking it ASAP. Once

the money has cleared the full story will c

ome out. Don’t forget to subscribe to the RSS feed or via email if you don’t use RSS (or understand what it is) to get the full story and hear the crap that we had to go through to get the money we were rightly owed!


I love the Smell of Coffee at an Inspection?

I was put on to The Australian Real Estate Blog by someone interested in Real Estate blogs (more about this at a later date (man I say that a lot)) and one of the recent articles makes for very interesting reading, especially to those people in the market for a new house. 

What if a potential purchaser smells fresh paint during an inspection? And what if this leads a purchaser to suspect that something dodgy is going on? Some people may actually investigate further to find out what was repaired, and how well it was repaired. Stockdale & Leggo have a tip that could save embarrassment.

So the post goes on to show a tip from Stockdale & Leggo that can be used to mask the smell of fresh paint. This is blog looks like a must subscribe by anyone that is in the market for a house!

Oh and don’t forget to read the comments for some of the other ways people have noticed sellers covering up bad smells. Makes you wonder! And what effect will vanilla extract have on the paint in the long run?



Friedlaenders – This is how they treat the people they deal with!

In conversations with Charles Friedlaenders of Friedlaenders Realestate about an issue we have with a property that we rented that they where the agent for, this is a quote of something that Charles (or someone porting to be Charles) said to us about us trying to get back money that we are owed:

“you’ll find out the hard way, again

PS it must have taken you some time to make up & write all that bullshit you petty pathetic little person(s

PPS no more emails anymore or we call the Police (no kidding); we won’t be communicating with you again”

Well just to answer this again:

A) VCAT advised us to let Friedlaenders know that they had 10 days (after they or the land lord they represent didn’t pay us money that VCAT instructed them they owe us)
B) We couldn’t call because they have to our memory NEVER returned a phone call that we have made to them and they asked us not to Phone them either. To use email is the same as a letter (maybe better, more traceable)
C) There is no bullshit on this site (as stated on the second line). All of the info on this site is true information, as far as we are aware. If you (the readers) find any information that is inaccurate, feel free to comment and if you are correct, I will update the information to be correct!

Will keep you informed of further updates and the full story will come out when this is all cleared up.
