tribunal results

Earlier, I mentioned that our last landlady didn't return our deposit/bond because she said we didn't clean the house to her liking. Sadly, she stuck to her guns and refused to return it, so we had no choice but to take her to Tenancy Tribunal to try to get it back. When that happened, we were both quite annoyed and Hubby decided that some things that we were going to let slide were going to be brought up.

We had a two hour session at the end of June and got another three hours last week.

Basically, we won almost all of our items and she didn't win any!

The bottom line is that we got our bond back plus we were paid $1050.00 in punitive fines from the landlady! 

I would have been happy with just our $400 bond/deposit back so this was a very nice surprise.

It was financially worth the effort then, to go to the tribunal, but not necessarily the stress. So glad you won, and I hope the landlady pays up!

Fantastic!! She shouldn't have been able to get away with that. Maybe she'll think twice about trying to put someone else in the same position

Well done..a good example to unscrupulous landlords, not to try it on.

Hi Betty, it's been a long time since I visited but happy to be catching up. Sorry to learn you have had this trouble and applauding you and hubby for taking this to its rightful conclusion. Hopefully they will think twice before trying to do this with another person. There are some real scoundrels out there.
