Hi there I am going to tribunal for the costs of carpet replacement and cleaning fees in a house we vacated a couple of months ago. We are happy to pay a % of carpet replacement but we think the amount for cleaning is totally unreasonable and just not sure where we stand on this. The house wasn't in great condition when we moved in and they are expecting it to be perfect as we leave. What can we do ?

Hi, I'm 26 and looking at investing in the property market.
I recently just received a substantial inheritance which I was not expecting. As great as this is, I'm a carpenter and have zero financial literacy about me and I don't want to just piss it up the wall.

I'm looking at getting some solid advice about purchasing real estate, what I should be looking for, how the whole system works, etc

Honestly. Any advice would be great?

I'm looking to move from my home in Brookfield, Vic to a 1 bedroom apartment in south Melbourne. I own the house in Brookfield outright but I believe I would on get up to about $300K for it. looking for the best way to get into apartment. i.e. Sell current property or rent it out. Rent in South Melbourne or buy etc. I've been told by lenders etc that I'm in a good position but m just looking for the best way to make the move happen. So rent out and pay tax or buy and cop a mortgage? Thanks

Q:

Would you please explain this criteria relating to CGT being based on the sale price less market value for a PPOR?
- when a capital gains tax (CGT) event happens in relation to the dwelling, you would get only a part exemption because you used the dwelling to produce assessable income during the period you owned it
- you would have been entitled to a full exemption if the CGT event happened to the dwelling immediately before you first used it to produce income.

Hi, My agent called Monday to arrange a showing of my home on Thursday/Friday to buyers. Never showed. The following Wednesday, unannounced he turns up. I was still in dressing gown and the place needed a little tidying up. Showing was embarrassing and didn't go well. Buyers didn't come back. Is this normal practice for agents, or is there something wrong with mine? Thank you.

Q:

I have a rental property. The tenant has passed away. My real estate took it upon themselves to clear out the rubbish the tenant had left and cleaning the back yard without my knowledge. After 8 weeks I find out I owe tradies $2300. Why was I not shown or told of the mess by the AGENT and allowed to inspect for myself? Are the Agents trying to hide something. What are my rights as a landlord?
