3 Month Maintenance

We have moved out of a rental and into our new home. The owner of the last rental has been a bit nutso and tried to claim almost our full bond back from us for the stupidest tiniest things. So I think I went a bit overboard and nit picking with our maintenance list.
I was scared I wasn't going to met the deadline if I posted it in, so I emailed it to there maintenance email address. I got a response in about 5 minutes that they had assigned it to there maintenance person. That person called about an hour later and we set a date for two days time for the guy to come out and address our issues.
I thought he would tell me I was being stupid and wouldn't do half of it, but he did every nit picking little thing on the list!! Including sanding the bits of roller fluff of the walls and repainting! He did however say he had never seen a list quite like it before!!

So here is the list:
Laundry – internal door needs sand and repair as per the Handover Items requiring attention form

Ensuite – silicon beading around top of tiles in shower recess where it meets the ceiling as per the Handover items requiring attention form
Bathroom – cold tap drips, have to turn it really really hard to turn it off
All the tiling stuff has been referred back to North Adelaide tiling, so I have to wait for them to call and send someone out.
All in all the maintenance guy had to come back 3 times to get it all done. But he did every thing that I listed (minus the tiling stuff).
Including painting all the doors!
