    Was it a survival thing or like a truth or dare deal?

    It was mostly a peer pressure thing (like most of the weird shit I've eaten), but they're readily available for sale in parts of SE Asia.

    Rats taste surprisingly good.

    Be aware if you do go to the TT and win your case, you will still be considered undesirable by PMs, as you will be seen as a troublesome tenant regardless. And just like trash talking your past employers, doing the same with previous landlords is not a good thing to do.
    Don't listen to this

    I already plug up my ears when I sleep because I'm a light sleeper

    As far as insects go, they're definitely one of the best. Tarantulas are gross.

    I would happily eat rat but it'd take a lot to get me to eat an insect, and cockroaches/spiders are permanently off the menu.

    I've always wondered what seagull would taste like, if they weren't carrying disease.

    We need to get used to the idea of eating insects, even though it's not something that is very palatable in Western society. It's going to be our saviour when the upcoming food crisis hits in the decades to come.

    YUMMY!!!!!

    It says:
    For baking, simply substitute 10-20% of the standard flour for cricket flour, works great in breads, pizza bases, cookies and most recipes. Otherwise add directly into smoothies and protein shakes.

    68.8% protein is pretty high.

    Why? I avoided eating the insects in south east asia, though i was tempted by the scorpions on Khaosan Road. Surely insects are similar to crayfish eating wise??

    The thing is a lot of bad PMs will see a name in the TT records and then go 'next'. It is just the filtering, PMs can do especially for highly desirable properties where there is a lot of applicants.

    You actually should. Tenants can be checked whether they've been to the TT before, and a LOT of landlords will just skip tenants who have and move onto the next applicant, regardless of reason.

    I believe with the new tenancy legislation, if a tenant is successful in a TT ruling then that info will not be made accessible.

    Every "We have found a more suitable tenant" excuse is a possible example.

    Now that is how it should be ... but then how would tenants find bad landlords or will the only successful tenant names be redacted and losing landlords remain.

    @ OP -- one option is to issue the Property Manager with a 14 day notice to rectify.

    Before you need to go to the Tenancy Tribunal.
