A 5-year-old mother was left devastated after her landlord presented a list of “crazy” requirements that had to be completed before a routine check-up.
The woman, from Victoria, Australiawas outrageously assigned a meticulous 32-point plan cleaning and clean up her house home page.
She was stunned by the strict instructions, even ridiculously suggesting to “clean the carpet professionally”.

Another wrote: “That’s ridiculous. They’re there to check out houses that aren’t people’s belongings, they don’t belong to the owners of the house.”
A third added: “That’s ridiculous, I have one too. I’m a cleaner and expected it to end on a clean lease/bond not a standard check.”
