  • A renter got an unexpected surprise when she moved into a Melbourne property
  • Her landlord said he would be storing belongings in the shed for a few months
  • But the woman discovered it was more than storage – he was living in the shed
  • After confronting him, he agreed to pay her $300 a month if she let him to say
  • He initially said needs 45 days but he now wants to stay for three months 

A renter got more than she bargained for when she discovered her landlord was living in the garden shed of her newly leased property.

The woman took to Fairy Floss, a Facebook real estate group for metropolitan Melbourne, asking its 267,500 members for advice about the bizarre scenario.

She said her landlord had told her he would be storing some belongings in the shed, but it quickly became apparent that he was living there.

After confronting him, he offered to pay her $300 (AUD) a month if she allowed him to stay, insisting he would only be there for a maximum of 45 days.

But when the renter demanded her landlord sign a contract confirming he would leave the shed in 45 days, he changed his mind and said he needed to stay for three months.
