Question about Installing a Bidet at a Rental Home

Hello, I want to install a bidet at my rental place.

I need to install bumpers on my toilet because my toilet seat is too low. I will be using professional grade super glue on the bumpers because I heard the prepackaged ones are pretty poor. Will there be any issues with getting back my bond if I install bumpers on a toilet i do not own? Should any issues arise would they accept some cheap new toilet seat from Bunnings?

I am leaning towards it not been worth the risk. Thoughts?

  • Buy "some cheap new toilet seat from bunnings" now and install what you want. Replace with the original when you leave.

  • how does a toilet seat relate to a bidet?

  • Will there be any issues with getting back my bond if i install bumpers on a toilet i do not own?

    The question is, when you move out, will you be able return the bathroom back to the state it was when you moved in? (other than just general wear and tear)?

    If you don't think you can, then get written permission before doing anything.

  • Does the bidet need a power socket or water tap installed?

  • What did your property manager say when you asked them?

  • Tenancy Agreements Generally have a clause such as:

    Tenant must make no alterations and must not add any fixtures or fittings without the consent of lessor
    67 The tenant must not make any additions or alterations to the premises without the written consent of the lessor.
    68 (1) The tenant must not add any fixtures or fittings to the premises without the consent of the lessor.
    (2) The lessor’s consent must not be unreasonably withheld.
    (3) The tenant must make good any damage to the premises on removal of any fixtures and fittings.
    (4) Any fixtures or fittings not removed by the tenant before the tenant leaves the premises becomes the property
    of the lessor

    remember while it may well be 'your home', it is their property.
    so, if a change you want to do is reasonable & done professionally the land lord should not unreasonably refuse the request.
