    Different states have different rules, suggest contacting the governing body in your state (NCAT, QCAT, VCAT etc).

    Generally speaking, I would imagine the landlord has a right to make sure damage has been repaired. S/he does have to give notice (in NSW it’s 2 days but in some states it’s longer).

    Just request the agent ask the tenant to send you a photo, really a 1 minute activity
    If the agent cannot do that. Get a new agent, bet you will have the photo within the hour.
    Your paying the agent to manage your property not have them manage you.
