This is an open letter to the Real Estate who mange our home, and to the people who own it
This house has become our home. I have loved it greatly in the eighteen months that we have lived here. I believe this shows in the care and love I have given this home. From the internal renovations I have done, such as painting bedrooms, painting door frames, repairing screen, and sewing and replacing torn blinds.
To the external, which I have also done a lot of work. It was a massive task cleaning up the back yard (with a huge amount of help from Dad and my little sister), I cleaned away the pool site that had been a safety risk to anyone entering the back yard, landscaped, planted grass, and built two huge edible gardens. In the front yard I have dug up and landscaped the front garden beds.
I believe all of this work is a sign of how much I love and care for this house, even though we only rent it. I believe it is very reasonable to ask that we do not have to live in a house that floods every time Brisbane has heavy rains.
The downstairs, Jarvis’s play area and the office/sewing room has yet again been further damaged from this week’s rains, and will continue to do so until repairs are done. I am aware that plumbing and drainage need to be done to rectify the situation, but surely it is not too much of an ask, to not have a cupboard that turns into a waterfall each time it rains?
I am also aware, that we have now asked over a dozen times for this repair to happen, and as of yet we have received no response, other than from the Real Estate telling us they will inform the owners.
Your tenant, Julie
Below is an example of just some of the work we have done to the property.
