Owner here visited by agreement (client cites repairs and sales visit) in my absence and searched 2 piles of my documents, removed some letters (I know because I sorted these papers and deleted particularly confidential items this morning – I don`t trust him, do I?) Judging by the text message I missed, the owner looked for items from his mail (still arrived here 4 years since he moved!?! Something suspicious? From the court, he gave an updated address to his bank/mortgage (?). But household insurance always comes! I wonder what he is worried about. But he didn`t leave a note about taking anything. This is ugly behavior. Locks Change the obvious next step. single: Cylinders & Euro-cylinders. For one reason or another, you might consider changing the locks on your building. If you are concerned that your tenant has changed the locks with the intention of denying you proper access to the property to perform essential tasks such as inspections, visits or repairs and maintenance issues, I would personally verify the termination of the lease. Tenants must return all keys and other security features (e.g. B garage remote controls and passport cards) to the lessor at the end of the lease. If the owner/agent changes the locks, you can complain to NSW Fair Trading. See complaint to NSW Fair Trading and seek advice from your local rental advisory and advocacy department at the Tribunal`s request (see below). If the locks were not replaced at the beginning or during the lease, it is likely that the rental agent also has the keys to your property..
