Monday 28 November 2022 11:54 PM Landlords expose Australia's worst tenants trends now
Devastated landlords left with a damage bill worth tens of thousands of dollars have exposed their tenants for 'vandalising' their home.
The three-bedroom family home in Manoora, a suburb in Cairns, in Far North Queensland, was allegedly completely trashed by the tenant.
Footage from inside the home shows windows and doors have been smashed, rubbish and food scraps left on the floor, holes punched in the walls and a garbage bag filled with dirty nappies left behind.
Several televisions have been left broken and covered with crayon on the floor while a graffitied car port in the front yard has been filled with junk.
Sharlyne and Stephen Smith told 7News they are 'devastated' by how their home has been disrespected and say the damage bill is in the tens of thousands.
'I've never seen anything like it in my life, it's absolutely disgraceful,' Ms Smith said.

'It got to the stage where she was locking me out of the house, locking me out of the gate so I couldn't get in.'
