The only negative thing I would say about Australia is our experience with a particular number 1 real estate agent that has an office in Morphett Vale. The agent that rented us a property lied repeatedly to the landlords when we reported leaks to the property. The agent then didn't do the final inspection until 3 days after we had left then wanted to charge us to clean the outside windows as in her opinion they were not clean enough.
I told her we would see them in an arbitration hearing to which they kindly refunded the bond 2 weeks after threatening us that we wouldn't see our bond for 6 months.
I have rented properties out to people whilst in the UK and have never treated anyone like some agents feel they can do here.
Basically as there are so many people requiring to rent they treat everyone like dirt as somebody else will come along.
