Hi, We received a rental statement from our Real Estate Agents, we noticed that there was a deduction and a bill was attached to the statement for rubbish removal fee. We then rang our Property Manager to make enquiry for what it was for and the answer was it was the fee for hiring someone to remove some rubbish and perishable items that left behide by previous tenants. Probably the new tenants who have already moved in found it and asked the Real Estate Agent to remove it. The bond was already released to the previous tenants so we got charged for that fee instead. My question is: Are we as a landlord is responsible for that fee under property law? The rubbish was not made by us, yet we were not aware of that charge until we received a statement from our Real Estate Agent. The agent didn't check the propperty properly when the previous tenant vacated. One of the reasons we're using agent for over 10 years because we need someone to help us to manage the property on our behalf but looks like it didn't quite work out. Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you soon.
