RENTAL horror stories are being shared in the Rockhampton community following yesterday's Morning Bulletin article with single young mother Amy Rann.

Miss Rann claimed she was told the floor boards would be replaced in a rental property at Mt Morgan before she moved in and six weeks later, her mother and son had a close call accident when the foot of a double bed they were lying on fell through the floor.

Online yesterday, one person commented: "We were told that we had to pay over $8000 for so-called repairs to the property and improvements".

Another, by r-ckstarache from Central Queensland, said: "Apparently this real estate agent and the owner of the house did not take any notice of the tragic accident a little while ago where a baby was killed when her dad who was holding her fell through a rotten floor board on a verandah and dropped her..... a death has already occurred on account of this sort of negligence so what is it going to take for these agents to do the job they are paid and licensed for properly?"

Poonie from Yeppoon said: "Looks to me this house is riddled with white ants and it's up to the landlord to do regular checks for white ants. If the landlord is not willing to do repairs then the real estate should hand the property back."

And it's not just Rockhampton horror rental stories that have appeared.

Dale Goody yesterday told the Morning Bulletin his old house in Gladstone was absolutely infested with termites, "to the point that there weren't even walls left, it was just paint. I was there for three years and nothing was ever done."
