Bloody hell. The owner has asked for a valuation of the house. Although the receptionist said that this could be because she wants to refinance or is 'just interested in knowing' - I strongly doubt she would have flown down to Canberra for the weekend just to look over the house if she wasn't thinking of something major. So, unless we can stay on, we're going to have to find a new place to rent when Canberra's rental market is the worst in history, and we have a dog (ie a second-class citizen when it comes to renting). Damn it!
And yeah, going to do my best to take it one day at a time, cross each bridge when we get to it, blah blah blah - but having been a renter all my life, I know this game inside out, am sick of it, and hate being told what to do, and when to do it, by other people!
