We all can write a book one day about what we have experienced as property managers.
We ran a post on our Facebook page to find out some funny or weird things that Property Managers have experienced.
Here are the best of a very long list of comments that we had:
Open for Inspection- Whoops!
I turned up to an OFI and there were a dozen people waiting out the front. I rushed in and, as the door of the flat was open, I called to the tenant that I was coming in to conduct the inspection.
There was no answer and nobody home so I showed them all through and just as the last person left the tenant came home. I introduced myself and advised that we had the OFI as planned. I also advised that he tidy the place up a bit in case we need another one.

Rabbits Trash a Property!
I have seen a tenant leave 15 rabbits inside the house after they moved out. I went in to do the outgoing and found they had chewed carpet, vertical blinds and peed up the walls. The rabbits were not there when I got there but when I questioned the tenant they advised that they had left them in the house so they would not run away!!
OMG!! Lucky that the tenants paid for new carpet and blinds then also lost their bond for cleaning.
