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.

  1. I have never had any problems with Friedlaender’s Real Estate, personally I find when you deal with companies in the real estate industry, and if you continually do not pay them properly you will get abused.
    I believe that there are some holes in your story.

  2. Hi Rowan,
    Great point. It is always a good idea to pay then at least on time. For this very reason, I use to pay our rent between 15 and 5 days early every month. The only time this didn’t happen was in our last month as we had an agreement with them to leave as soon as possible (not the standard month) and that meant the final rent payment was not able to be worked out. I let them know this and they were fine with that at the time.

    To be honest all the trouble started after we moved out and the Gas/Water issue came up as well as the issue of bond.

    I think that your right about there being holes in the story. This company had been so bad to deal with I didn’t want to put the story up until I had received the money that was rightly owed us. That has been done and so, in the near future I will tell the full side of our story and invite Charles and/or the Land Lord to tell theirs (unedited apart from anything unfit for the site (i.e. swearing, something that might get me sued).

    You mentioned that you thought their where holes in the story, could you let me known what you think they are so I can expand on them?


  3. Well I havent heard of that company but Rowan sounds like an employee or the guy himself.

    He gives himself away by saying “……You will get abused” – personally I find the best business practice is to not abuse people.
