Landlord forced to keep bond after speck of dust found on bannister

Local landlord Mick Hunt has today made the difficult decision to keep $2000 of his former tennant’s money, after finding his property in a complete state of disrepair. “There’s water stains in the sink, a dead fly in the attic, and I even found three specks of dust on the windowsill!” wept Mick. “I don’t know how I’m ever going to be able to restore this place now.”

“Worse still the whole place is riddled with mold, the carpet’s threadbare, and many of the floor’s supporting beams are gone!” continued Mick. Informed that fixing those things was actually his responsibility, Mick went on to explain that actually those are now features, and they’re not that bad on second inspection.
