DONT TRUST ARGY PROPERTY REAL ESTATE - HELP?? Issues with "Argy Property" real estate need advice.... I signed a lease for a unit in Marrickville (for 10th July) upon arriving found extremely dirty kitchen, bathroom and things left over from last tenants. The taps weren't on wall in the shower and looked like blood stain on the bathroom floor. Place looked like it had water damage as there was mould in the kitchen and wood rot in the cupboards. I complained immediately and asked for a condition report and sent them photos. Argy Property gave every excuse to not be blamed for there poor management and claiming that i shouldnt have signed the lease if i didnt like it..... I had actually applied for a different room through these people.... they told me it was unavailable but this room was free.... while i did have a quick look at the room, there were workers in there so I couldn't look properly and assumed things were being fixed..... they then got the landlord to contact me... ISNT THIS THEIR JOB? landlord wasn't happy and not a nice person. I asked why it wasn't fixed..... lots of excuses with contractor. I then go back to real estate asking why I wasn't informed... all they could say was oh that they didn't know, not there fault??.... isnt the job of a property manager to... manage the property??? I want all money back I don't trust these people. They want me to leave a key at the property so the contractor can fix and have offered me $100 off of week of rent to cover cleaning cost..... What do I do???

under law they obligated to have they own key but they sound like bunch of twats that will not accept any responsibility so go to mitre 10 and copy a key its only $5 and hand it to real estate you ahve been through enough and you should not have to worry that thee idiots will misplace your key as well.........instead of just $100 off once off ask for them in  writing for $10 off rent each week for full term of your lease and if they whinge and take them to tribunal and due to thier negligence and misleading you with rental terms and conditions and the amount requested is so minimal i can be quuite certain the judge will rule in your favour
