I had a 12 month residential lease. 6 months into it one
Hi... I had a 12 month residential lease. 6 months into it one owner claimed his life was hell with wife and wanted to move back in. He gave me a RTA form 2 months to vacate (without reason). I was renting directly through him and his wife. He began to hassle us constantly about if we had found another house. It caused us much Stress and we finally couldn't cope. When we told him that on Friday 16/02/18 that we would have keys for other he was there giving us 5 hours to pack and move as well as having 4 other people supporting his claim for us to leave by that night. We paid him $595 per week and had a excellent rental receipt book. Three days later his wife rang, (Part owner) bewildered why she had received from the RTA a Bond Refund as she had no idea of what he was up to. This led to me have time off work and sick leave, (stress) as well as cost of Moving and have pressure inserted to have to pay a further 6 weeks rent in order to occupy the other premises. He verbally agreed to waive two weeks rents and power solar and gas bills which were still in his name. We have received Bond back in full but he has been abusive towards us in honoring the other parts as well as the humiliation of having 4 people pointing their phone cameras at us when we were trying to pack up. He is a lawyer in the Fortitude Valley Brisbane and through intimidation snatched the garage remote by entering the premises when I was not there at 6pm that Friday night from the female tenant. She was crying from the abuse and quite harassed. I called the police but they failed to come. I am 59 years of age and still shaken from this experience and would wish to discover if this man is liable for his misdemeanors. Other words, can we claim any costs. We such as Removal shipping, etc. This has put a huge financial burden on us but we had no choice to pay the other two weeks in order to recover our Bond which was $2380. Look forward to your reply. Thanks. … read more
