Jurisdiction is Western Australia.
If a landlord is experiencing financial troubles, and is attempting to evict their tenants on false grounds, in order to increase his sale price or make finding a buyer easier, how can those tenants challenge these false assertions and retain their tenancy?
The landlord is asserting lack of maintenance/cleaning of the property, including leaving tracks and windows dirty, whereas the tenant asserts that they are clean.
Is this behavior illegal? Can having a dirty rental be grounds for eviction, and if so, how can a tenant determine what maintenance is needed? Can the eviction be preemptively stopped or must it be challenged in court, and if so how?
