I recently moved out from a 2 bedroom unit(plus small study area) where i lived for 3 years. I got email from Real estate agent advising me to Pay $2800 for wall damage. Stupid of me, i tried to patch the wall(6 spots) which happened due to those 3m tape for hanging picture frame. Except these damages,there are other paint chips and cracks(4-5 of them were already there when we moved in)
Though i accept the responsibility of patching the wall, i was wondering is the money asked is reasonable?
There was also some stain marks on 2 bedrooms. Apartment was flooded couple of years back and strata/real estate didnot cleaned/fixed for 10 days.Because of that carpet in lounge and around kitchen has been damaged(they didnot claimed any money of it). We tried to keep the rooms as good as possible but there are stains(we accept it but again carpet was wet for 10 days and stains are from that period) and asked again for $1700 for that. Shall i pay all the money and move on? Or is there any remedy?
Hoping to get some advice from fellow ozbargain ers.
