Wie es zur Zeit in Australien auf dem Wohnungsmarkt zugeht

hallo zusammen, wir wohnen seit fast 4 Jahren in Perth und haben letzte Woche eine Wohnung gesucht. Da hier der Wohnungsmarkt sehr angespannt ist (Perth) hat sich folgendes zugetragen - ueber diese Handlungsweise kann sich jeder selbst ein Urteil bilden.
Die Emails muessen von unten nach oben gelesen werden.


Thanks for your comments I will take them on board.





As I can say again: If xxx had advertised this rental for a higher
amount to begin with we probably would have applied as well.
But this is not about the rental at all, it is about codes & practices
xxx seems to be familiar with.
In terms of "the act states we must work in our principles best
interest at all times" does not imply to work with any kind of method.
So yyy's statement " this is usually not our practice" doesnt really
have any ground to stand on...
In terms of "giving us an equal opportunity" : xxx/ yyy did
not give us an equal opportunity at all - By giving every tenant an
equal opportunity, applications containing "handling fees", "higher
rents" etc. should not be accepted.

I have noticed another property advertised by xxx (adresse)
with an interestingly low rent. I wonder if this will be auctioned as
well - It wouldnt surprise me at all.


> > Hi thankyou for your email we had many applications on the property
concerned when processing rental applications we refer all applications to
the owner, the act states we must work in our principles best interest at
all times, had yyy not asked you to increase your rental amount the
property would have been leased to the applicant with the higher rental
amount as instructed by the owner, yyy was only trying to give you an
equal opportunity to sucure the property, I am sorry you feel this way about
xxx best of luck finding a property regards andrew johns. xxx

Rental Auction?

Auch wenn diese illegal sind wird es diese immer geben. Office of Fair Trading (Qld) liest Beschwerden gern wird aber nichts wirklich unternehmen außer vielleicht ein Blabla Antwortschreiben.

Such dir einen anderen, es wird noch ein paar geben die sich an das Gesetz halten. Und wenn die auch ein Angebot wollen - biete $5(die Woche) mehr..das reicht meist (Qld) to flip the switch! :wink:

Deutsches Prinzipiengehabe bringt dir nichts außer das ALLE über dich herzlich lachen - this is Australia ya no?

games oughta be played the australian way... :roll:

Psst: Perth ist klein, treib es bunt und du wirst sehr schnell überall absagen erhalten - die Property Manager kennen sich alle untereinander (treffen sich gewöhnlich 1x im Monat) und DU wirst schnell Stadtgespräch.
