I need your help. After signing of lease contract in Assure
After signing of lease contract in Assure property office on 13. Mar, the agent Isaac let me know I need to share the electricity and gas bill with the next door which looks like an independent house as there are fences around but it's a granny flat connected to 8 Millar Place that I'm staying now. I was embrassed but I accepted as it's hard to find rent house, I have 2 kids and a little baby and I thought the account was already opened under the next door person as there were tenants when I had an inspection. I met the next door Mr. Priyal Kulawansa who is staying in 8A Millar Place to say hello and he didn't have any information regarding the bill like me. I've also recognised the house was granny flat as he said. And he will move out in 6months. If I open an account under my name, I worry about the next tenant who wants to move into 8A. Why I have to worry about the next tenant who can pay the bill or not behalf on the owner of this house? The agent Isaac who is in charge of this property asked for me to pay with head accounts. It's not fair for all. We are all 5 and the 8A is 4. Isaac advised me my case was 4.5 cuz of a 19months old baby. But the next door is 2by 1 n my house is 4by2. I've kept asking for the owner to install new metre or open an account under his name but the agent didn't answer at all. The synergy emailed me it will be disconnected very soon as the account is not opened but usage is happening. This is urgent but they didn't anything for me and suggest any solutions. After having keys on 13.Mar I checked the condition report. This house hasn't cleaned at all, the gas cook top made some noise and didnt work properly and the lights for 2 rooms didn't work at all even husband tried to fix them. I asked them to fix it strongly and straight away. The bad condition of air-conditioner, no tower rails in shower rooms, broken drawers and unlocked garage door etc had been reported straight away. Even they had a time to fix them they didn't do anything till I moved in and didn't organise things at all. I've tried to contact Isaac. He just said there's no answer from the owner and now he tried to avoid my calls. On 24. Mar, a friend of mine visited me and she smelled gas leaking. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't be able to write this. Only then did a plumber come in and fix the gas, and the owner didn't answer about the bill. I'm so upset owner's uncooperative and complacent attitude, and I feel like I need to do something. Please advice and help me … read more

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
