    ''Why would you look in that cupboard if its to small to go in''(gotta be joking)
    And just like majic-after Cambel live--repairs done.
    That old ''best defense is offense'' sure looks dicey in this case.
    And our reputation as landlords gets further soiled.

    Only downside is that other tenants may get the idea that its fair game to withhold rent if they think anything doesnt stack up,even with good landlords.

    I also liked the bit where he was too busy to fix the window - just get it done!
    Make the phone call and get someone in if you are too busy to do it yourself.

    It was also interesting he felt it was the girls who had messed it up. Maybe they took all the light bulbs as a setup.
    And pulled a couple of light fittings off and threw a few maggots around for good measure.

    Yeah call me racist, but this is an immigrant problem. I dunno where that guy comes from, but wherever it is, a house like that is probably a palace. And so he can't understand the problem.

    Multiculturalism is both good an bad.
    Squadly dinky do!

    It isn't you know - it's a 'what I can get away with' problem.
    Can't tell me all the shit flats in Dunedin and the rest of NZ are all owned by immigrants!
    Though the one my son is in in Christchurch is owned by an Asian dude (may have lived here for quite a while though).

    there are but these students would have signed up for this place last october probably expecting the place clean and tidy, obviously the LL didnt check it, or if he did he obviously didnt clean it, be interesting to see if he managed to hold the previous tenants bond

    Saw that and the question that was begging to be asked was "Why didn't you inspect and repair the flat before the girls moved in?"

    My daughter is flatting in Dunedin and has had good landlords so far but if she ended up in a flat like that I'd have intervened in a fierce way. Maggots. Broken windows. That isn't rocket science to detect or fix.

    He said he did but that was obviously bull.
    That's about the stage he blamed the girls.
    Obviously a setup and the media were just out to get him!
