From a HNSW tenant:
I've been waiting 13 months to get a downpipe fixed. Simple job. It's been assessed by the Assets Team but they say they "have no money". They haven't had any money for 13 months. Every month it's the same excuse. Now, because of the leaking downpipe, the window has rotted. Now they have to find the money for the downpipe AND the window. It took about 3 months for the benchtops to become swollen - because the window leaked - because the downpipe was broken. You get the picture...
Recently my neighbour moved out. The best word to describe my neighbour was "feral". She lived like a pig, she acted like a pig. She left the yard like this:
This will cost HNSW about $1000 to clean up and get rid of the rodents, the cockroaches and the fleas.
I hate to imagine what the inside of the house is like.
WHY are the ferals allowed to get away with this?
WHY do the decent tenants have to suffer because HNSW won't act on their own policies?
WHEN will we get proper management of Housing with the backbone to stand up to the ferals and make them PAY for their disgusting living standards?
This particular feral wasn't evicted - she was REWARDED with a brand new HNSW home.
