In this video, a man takes viewers on a virtual tour of a ‘dismal’ house in Doveton, Victoria.
“Harcourts, you are literally the worst,” reads the caption to the video.
Geordie explains that the one-bedroom, one-bath studio costs $320 a week.
“But if you look closely at Google Maps, you will see that it is just a carport,” he says.
“There are several ways to know that this place is illegally divided, which means you can’t put your name on any utilities or anything, so you can’t prove where you live.
“Also, you should share the internet with someone who lives in a real house, not in a garage.”
Geordie claims that the telltale signs that lead him to believe the place is illegally divided is the fact that there is only one mailbox at the address and the listing says all bills are included in the rent.
“If you look at the mailbox in Google Street View, there will only be one, and it is not for the second block,” he said.
Geordie criticized the fact that the house was advertised as a family vacation home.
“Personally, I really liked that the real estate agent said it was perfect for the whole family,” he said.
“When it’s literally a studio converted from someone’s fucking carport.”
“They also said that the property would leave you speechless, which I think is technically correct.”
The studio’s living room and kitchen were then shown in images that showed illegal pipes hanging from the walls.
“I’m not a plumber, but I’m pretty sure all this plumbing isn’t meant for the interior of a living space,” he said.
“And as for the kitchen, there’s a range hood that seems to need its own range hood.”
The video has since garnered over 90,000 views and hundreds of comments from other frightened tenants.
“How is this legal, and then nothing happens to the agents?” one commented.
“Breathtaking views” if you like to feel captivated,” added another.
“The sad thing is that someone would actually be desperate enough to take it,” added a third.
