‘Everything was covered in fleas, cockroaches, food, faeces’: Owner’s home is ‘trashed by a mother-of-three’ while he cares for his sick father overseas
- Owner Darius Molaee returned to find renovated home in almost unlivable state
- He said he rented the home privately to a mother-of-three while he was overseas
- He was overseas caring for his sick father but returned to bio-hazard of a home
A property owner who leased out his home while he was overseas caring for his sick father claims he returned to find the property unlivable and the tenant gone.
Perth man Darius Molaee said he leased his Medina home privately to a mother-of-three in March while he was in Germany looking after his father.
But after returning in October, what he found stunned him and has left him thousands out of pocket.
His fully renovated home had been turned to squalor within months and the tenant was nowhere to be found.

He claims his property had become a virtual bio-hazard zone, requiring protective equipment to even step inside, Perth Now reported.
‘Everything was covered in fleas, cockroaches, food, faeces,’ he told the publication.
Insurers are still waiting to enter the home for assessment because there are fears there could be toxic levels of methamphetamine inside.
The house is also infested by cockroaches, which have proven increasingly difficult to eradicate.
‘This is after five times fumigation. Five times of fumigation? Five times of fumigation,’ Mr Molaee said.
‘I feel raped. I really do feel like I’ve been taken advantage of and I can’t do anything about it.’
Fumigation typically costs $1 to $3 per square foot. A 2,000sq. ft home could cost between $2,000 to $6,000.

The RSPCA also confirmed to Perth Now they had to remove several animals from the home.
Mr Molaee said he decided to do what he could to clean up his home, only to discover his tools had also been stolen.
A 31-year-old woman was arrested after allegedly trying to sell a stolen chainsaw to a pawn shop and has been charged with fraudulently selling the item.
