    • I would agree with justaguy and try to bypass the agents by dealing direct with owners. Not that it helps in your situation but yes, Adelaide rental agents are average at best and in some cases outright cowboys.  We have twice had to take agents to SACAT (rental tribunal) and won both times.   I also found that the law here is weighted very much towards landlords, and I say this as a former landlord myself in the UK.  The idea of a 'rolling lease' for example has been laughed out of town every time I suggested it, even though I offered this for my tenants in the UK - flexibility for both parties. Also look out for the old 'break of lease' scenario, we bought property mid way through our rental lease and the landlord/agent came after us for 'loss of rent' even though we gave 6 weeks notice before moving out, they refused to even start advertising until we had handed the keys back.   During Covid!   As a result the rental was empty for nearly 3 months, agent comes after us for loss of all that rent and we take them to SACAT.   Again! Best of luck to the OP.  ps if anyone is having issues with ADL rental agents and want advice on the SACAT process feel free to PM, I strongly believe the agents in a lot of  cases take advantage of good tenants who do not have the means or knowledge to fight them.
