I rented a house as a single mum of 3 over 6 years, last

Customer Question

I rented a house as a single mum of 3 for just over 6 years, last year I struggled, 2 big kids moved out. Entire time they fixed nothing, I did, met owners on occassion they were very happy. Falling behind in bills realestate sends notices n i liason with them then eviction notice, I say nothing I can do. Distraught obviously trying 2 see if can get public housing. Then get tex owners say disregard all notices, as long as u show u pay something. Major mould problem in house white ants dodgey plumbing windows wouldnt open. Realestate refused fix nething, to expensive! I couldnt budget painting walls for mould any more and other upkeeps and I watched house detoriate. Eventually I hated house, looked dirty, neighbours disgusted and would defend me. I got eviction notice and ignored it, as a mum I new wasnt healthy and 2 much upkeep on my own. They filed court claims of me not leaving before due date, and rta was unsatisfied. But a week off me leaving the house gets demolished! Im now sharing my mothers bedroom with my daughter. Why did I continually get harrassed and no help for 6 years then pull it down because its unlivable, I paid over $100,000 + all the fixings I done. Flooded majorly you wouldnt believe photos, hence the mould. I feel cheated.
