A landlord has publicly shamed his tenants after they left his home in an appalling state, with every room filled with rubbish and unwanted junk.
Travis Adams was “shocked” and “disgusted” when he discovered the state of his Australian home, and he’s facing a huge bill to clean it all up.
The walls are filthy, there are broken windows and the copper has been removed from the hot water system which means it needs to be replaced.
There are also cockroaches, rats and flies.
Travis shared a video of the mess on social media showing the state of the bedrooms, garden, hallway, kitchen and bathrooms.
He said: “It’s just feral. It’s disgusting.
“They’ve literally just taken their clothes and left. That’s basically what they’ve done.”
Sofas, a barbecue, a tyre a broken tables and a children’s play house are among the items just lying around the rooms.
The tenants left the washing machine and the fridge, still filled with rotting food.
The garden is covered with rubbish and there is a child’s cot on its side on the long grass.
You can’t even see the floor in the master bedroom there is so much rubbish.
The mattresses, which are standing up against the wall, are also filthy.
Travis’s sister-in-law Charmaine Kettle has set up a GoFundMe charity page to raise money to help him sort it all out.
She wrote: “This is just a snapshot of what my brother-in-law Travis was left by his filthy tenants.
“This home was beautiful clean and tidy when these low lives moved in.
“Trav had Landlords insurance however wasn’t aware that he required default tenant insurance to cover tenant damage.
“So he has been left to foot the cleanup and massive bill on his own.
“Every room as well as outside has been left littered with clothes rubbish and debris.
“Trav is one of the nicest, cleanest, easy going people you will ever meet and I’m hoping that some small donations will help him in this massive clean up.
“All the walls need repainting, flooring needs replacing, kitchen needs replacing and a thorough pest eradication due to cockroaches and rats.
“The copper has been removed from the hot water system rendering it useless and broken windows have already been replaced.
“As a family we will all be pitching in to help bring this house back to its original state.
“If you can’t donate a simple share would be sooooo appreciated.”
So far they’ve raised more than $500AUS towards their $2,000 target.
Travis has started the clean up process, but he still has a long way to go.
