Any repairs that are needed on the property should be made clear to your landlord, preferably in writing. Some repairs will be considered urgent if your health and safety or the property itself is threatened.
The owner of the property has the right to sell the property regardless of the lease type. However, as a tenant, you have the right to remain in the property for the duration of your fixed term rental agreement In the event you do have to relocate, we are more than happy to work with you to find a new rental property that will suit your needs.
You will find the expiry date in your agreement. Before the expiration date you can request a lease renewal from the landlord . The owner of the property has the right to renew the lease, let arrangements continue under the terms of the original lease or issue the appropriate notice requesting that you vacate the property.
Your agreement will define the notice you need to give. based on that there will be a penalty amount you will need to pay. This is applicable for both the Tenant and the Landlord
A landlord has to give the tenant notice before entering the property, unless it’s an emergency.
If a tenant believes the landlord is not keeping to their side of the agreement – for instance, not maintaining the property in a fit state of repair – then the first thing the tenant should do is speak to the the Landlord and get it resolved as soon as possible
Don’t worry – accidents happen. You can inform the landlord as soon as possible. You will be expected to cover the cost of putting it right. Don’t try to ignore or hide damage because it could get worse, and it will only come out of your deposit at the end of the tenancy.
In most cases, a tenant can only decorate or make changes to the property with the express permission of the landlord. We recommend receiving this permission in writing.
The landlord is responsible for maintaining the property in a good state of repair. If you do damage to the property you are expected to cover the cost of putting this right. Acquest could also help you repair these in consultation with the landlord.
Two types of agreements you could sign are a Lease agreement or Tenancy agreement if its signed as a lease agreement get confirmation of its payable as well. For lease agreement there’s a stamp duty component that is calculated as 1% payable of one years total rent. Tenancy agreement do not carry any stamp duty fees.
The landlord trusts the tenant to keep the property in a good condition and in good order. The deposit is held to ensure that any damages (over and above fair wear and tear) can be corrected at the end of the tenancy.
Make sure you go and view the property. We will show you your next house along with it’s owners where you can clarify all areas your unclear of / Payment Terms etc
Before you start searching for your new house or apartment it’s a good idea to write down a budget. What are your current outgoings and what money you have left to spend on rent?
