A renter in Melbourne has taken to Reddit to share their experience of how an ex-tenant had ingeniously figured out a way to communicate the home’s problems.
During an inspection of a three-bedroom home in Australia’s second-most populous city, the Reddit poster observed a number of post-it notes scattered around the rooms, with helpful messages explaining where issues were occurring.
One post-it was found stuck to the laundry window and read, “This [the window] is the only way to ventilate the laundry, but there’s no flywire.”
Another note stuck to the rangehood in the kitchen read, “range hood doesn’t work, but window over sink fills house with bugs.”
Perhaps the most damning secret message, however, was the one left in the bathroom, which described the shower’s water pressure as being lacklustre, notwithstanding the fact it had already been fixed twice.
The Reddit poster confirmed that the home and indeed the real estate agent were both suboptimal, noting the agent had not bothered to check the house.
“It was decrepit in there. The agent just sat outside with no idea. Asking $600/week was an absolute joke,” the user wrote.
Despite the disappointing abode, though, the would-be renter said it was “the most fun I’ve had at an inspection looking around to find new notes,” adding, “the old tenant is a legend.”
