    Well that is right. Generally I try to be nice to existing tenants. I leave the squabbles till the end. Generally they have been the better sort of tenant and so asking them to pay for a new bit of glass when it is not broken is a bit hard nosed. Every time I am too soft later on it comes back to bite me somewhere sensitive.

      I assumed that a new pane would be put in at the end whether the cat flap pane was broken or not - all properly documented of course. Just think what happens when the next tenant wants a pet and you say 'no, we don't allow pets'. They will just point at the cat flap and eyeball you.

        Especially when their big-fat-arse dog decides he wants to RAM his head through the cat-flap! (not once but 3 times!)

          That's an unusual place to have them Glenn. Perhaps you should see a doctor.

              I would but most doctors are such a pain and I do complain a lot about paying them.

                Hi, I replaced glass bottom pane with flat hardie sheet and fitted dog door for a staffy dog who runs thru the bloody thing at high speed (so far it is working a treat for 6 mths so far). This is the son's dog at own home.

                  when i was a tenant we had a couple of houses where the deal was this:
                  1. we pay to put cat flap into a door approved by landlord (ie away from weather etc)
                  2.we were to replace panel of door to bring property up to standard as it was leased to us - as per most tenancy agreements
                  3. Bond only returned once this was done.
                  PS one landlord did not insist on this as he was moving back into the house and at that stage had his own house.
                  This plan worked for everyone concerned... cost less than $100 to replace the pane, cheaper than losing the bond!
                  two ears and just one mouth.. for good reason.
