I have been renting a property for the past 2 years. The MDF vanity has water damage which the agent wants me to replace. But I have argued
- Poor quality MDF Used
- Sink top does not have a lip over the MDF so water is forced to drip down
- Vanity was not level when installed causing water to always drip down that way
6 months into the rental, cracks started showing in the sides of the MDF. I contacted the agent, they brought a builder in and he told me that I have to wipe down the vanity after each use. Now 1 year further it has just expanded even more.
Not sure what do do, if I need to pay the replacement fee, before the end inspection or dispute it through a bond dispute. Or any ways I can get the agent to pay for the replacement. This is happening in a few other areas in the building. (Wolli Creek)
