A QUEENSLAND renter has created a hilarious TikTok video showcasing her former abode, saying future tenants should “not look up” at the mold or “trip and die” in the bathroom.
Posted by @bonesxo, the content creator talks up the property like a real estate agent, and says she made the video to help out her previous property manager.
It would appear that the house is in Brisbane.

Listed for $450 a week, the vlogger points out the cracked footpath before adding “no, you will be fine” and opening the door.
She notes the stained glass and then quips, “no issues here, absolutely no mold, don’t look up under any circumstances”.
In a bedroom, she notes again that potential renters should “not look up” before adding that “you will realize that the roof is bowing” because of “leaks from the damaged roof”.
“Welcome to the bathroom. Mind the step on that. Don’t trip and die,” she says.
Without missing a beat, she sarcastically says “as you can see everything has been well-maintained”.
“The owner is looking for someone on a really high salary to keep it like that.”
In the kitchen, “everything is fine” despite the cupboard doors not closing and the lock on the window is missing.
The master bedroom comes in for some more hilarious commentary, with the creator saying again “don’t look up as your bed is going to be under this”.
“I can’t say it (mould) is going to be good for your health but it might not be good,” she says.
“And then we come to the wardrobe which, don’t touch it as it falls on ya and kill ya…we are not liable.”
In the sunroom, renters are advised not to look up or down.
Outside, she notes it is “pet friendly” as the video scans for a dog, presumably a stray.
Under the house where the slab has been damaged, she notes the storage is “absolutely brilliant, well maintained again, brilliant, brilliant”.
“Some artwork (graffiti), that’s free,” she says, before scanning to a broken fence that she said the last tenant had reported “months and months ago”.
In another video posted by @justintylercarter, the creator starts out by telling his audience that he recently moved and his new real estate was “pissing me off already”, alleging that their actions could be grounds for him to break his lease.
So he tells his audience that he has started looking at other houses to rent.
“Some of these houses in Brisbane right now… I’ll just show you,” he says, before cutting away to rental listings on a computer.
First up is a house at Camp Hill that was listed for $400 a week.
“It is a 3 or 4 bedroom… what the f*** do you mean?” he says.
The TikTokker then comments on the houses “decent” exterior before looking at interior pictures.
“Is this the kitchen?” he says. “Was there a fire in there?”
He then shows images of other rooms in the house while asking “$400 a week, $400 a week?”
“And they couldn’t even clean it,” he states.
Queensland’s rental crisis has been playing out on social media as desperate renters try to put a roof over their heads as weekly rents climb.
Some have turned to caravan parks and hotels, while others have resorted to living in their cars.
