A House of Horrors, Rental Property Nightmare
A HOUSE of horrors riddled with mould and infested with the stench of damp soil and cigarettes has been abandoned by public housing tenants, leaving behind a clean-up bill worth more than $20,000. Get your free report “landlord mistakes”
The five-bedroom house in a quiet Northcote street will take more than a month to clean and sanitise after eight years of damage and neglect from the former tenants.
Every wall in the house, which is only 15 years old, has new or patched holes.
Mould is creeping from the ceilings down the walls and the skirting boards in most rooms are rotten from moisture.
The tenants abandoned the property in January.
There were six people living in the house, including children.
