Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Rent with a roommate who has cat. cat caused damage to fly wire. Real Estate indicates it is a shared cost. How do I get out of it. Not my cat.
JA: What state/territory are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Qld
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I bought the fly wire. My dad fixed everything for free. But I am afraid there will be more cost associated with the cat - like the urine smells. We have breaker the lease and my roommate have done nothing. Just said they should use her bond to fix things. But half of all cost is on me.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: don’t think so

Hi, I’m Leon a solicitor in Sydney. Thank you for contacting me today. Your question is as important to me as it is to you. I am just reviewing it.

Leon, Expert

If you are both on the lease you are both liable to the landlord even if it is not your cat.

You have a right to sue your room mate for the money you pay because it is not your cat.

Your room mate should step up and pay the lot. If he refuses then you can take him to QCAT and get reimbursement of the money you have to pay.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by rating my work 5 stars so I can be paid. Highlight the 5 stars at the top and click the submit button.
