I've been renting this house in Victoria for about 4 years now. There are 3 months left from this contract.
Yesterday I found that the house has started to move. 2 sides of the house, that I can see, have started to move. This happened quite recently. Not sure exactly when but we suspect during the last rains.
There are numerous cracks inside the house now, especially around the windows.
We've sent an email to the agent immediately with the pictures and the reply wasn't what we expected.
We mentioned that we have starting looking for a another house in the area as we don't feel safe inside, especially with children around and that we were hoping that they will understand and brake the least before expiry in case we manage to find something.
Thank you for your email. I will ask the owner if he would be willing to send a building inspector to check the property and make sure it is safe.
That's it. That's the whole reply.
We loved the house especially for the fact that everything is close and we can walk to school, work, activities, etc.
What are our options in case they we will find something and they don't want to break the lease?
How bad do you think the house is?
